RAINY MESS AT OLNEY INVITATIONAL

Up in the morning and leaving at 6:30 am with rain pouring down, exactly how you would like to start the day of a large meet. 22 of the 23 runners loaded on the new Hamilton County bus for the 1 1/2 Hour journey to Olney in Richland County. In the past few years, the Foxes have not ran well. On Friday night the parents of the Foxes runners fed the Foxes an amazing dinner of Spaghetti, Lasagna, pasta salad, bread sticks, salad and multiple deserts. The Foxes Football game also got postponed on Friday night which hopefully allowed most of the runners to get a good night sleep. I was nervous that I might over sleep and not have time to load the bus in the morning so I packed my car and laid everything out the night before and went to sleep at 10:30 pm, I think I woke up every hour throughout the night. This was our first big competition in a few weeks.

FOXES TAKE FIRST PLACE AT NORRIS CITY

The Foxes received a first place trophy for an outstanding performance by the Foxes. The Foxes went to the Norris City Invitational set on taking home a little bit of hardware. The girls were missing #1 Runner Raegan Halley and Abby Reyling, who were both resting their injured legs so they will be ready for the Olney Invitational on Saturday. The boy’s team was in full force and even had seven athletes that were unable to compete due to the Invitational only having two races.

The girls ran first. Jasmine Coomes took out fast and led the Lady Foxes throughout the first lap of the three lap course. Olivia Ragan followed closely behind read more …

Foxes Cross Country teams competed at the West Frankfort Park today in the West Frankfort Invitational. The West Frankfort Invitational was originally scheduled for Thursday September the 8th, but due to the rainy weather it was postponed. The weather on this day was definitely not rainy, which of course meant that it was hot and humid. The Foxes ended up with a 1st place finish by the boys and a 2nd place finish by the girls.

The Foxes traveled to the West Frankfort Course for the first time this year. The next time that the Foxes travel to West Frankfort will be for the Regional. The course for this year was the same modified course as what it was last year at West Frankfort. When we arrived to the course it was explained to us that read more …

20160906_190540Foxes Cross Country teams competed at the Benton Park today in the Benton 6+ Meet. The Benton 6+ is named so because it was the Benton 6 with six teams, but over the years it has expanded to between 6 and 10 teams. The weather today started out nice but turned out to be sunny and hot. The Foxes finished 1st as a team and the Lady Foxes finished 3rd as a team. The Foxes ran 12 boys in the race and 7 girls.

The Foxes traveled to the Benton Course for a recently changed course. The course has been mostly the same for the last 15+ years, but the changes that were made to the course seem to have everyone happy. The boys were up first with a 4:30 p.m. start. The boys charged up the first hill with some decent speed but trying not to burn themselves out for the rest of the race. Hunter Braden had made his way to the read more …
