From the desk of Willie Delwiche.
My team just participated in our final cross country race of the season, and I was thrilled with our performance.
Our focus this season was effort and the improvement that follows. This week, our runners delivered. Big time!
We had 17 athletes compete. Of this group, 13 matched or posted their best time of the season — a few by wide margins.
These accomplishments didn’t show up on the leaderboard. The most competitive runners on the top teams ran mile after mile over the course of the summer. As you would expect, they received their fair share of medals and accolades.
But for us, it was a race full of individual victories.
