Dave Gray Invitational (Norris City) – 9/14/2017
9/14/2017 – NCOE (Dave Gray) Invitational
The Lady Foxes and Foxes received first place trophies for outstanding performances by both teams. The Foxes went to the Norris City Invitational set on taking home a little bit of hardware. Both teams were in full force and even had extra athletes that were unable to compete due to the Invitational only having two races.
The girls ran first. Raegan Halley took out fast and led the Lady Foxes throughout the three lap course. Jasmine Coomes followed closely behind her, Reagan took Third overall and Jasmine was fourth overall in the race. Olivia Ragan was 10th and Kaylee Chapman was 12th overall, all taking home medals. The Lady Foxes ended up taking 1st place overall with a score of 56.
The Boy’s team took off at 4:00 and were ready to try a little bit of a different strategy. The Foxes stayed packed together for runners number 1 through 7 after a mile into the race and stayed there until the end of the race. The pack of runners was close and encouragement for the pack was abundant. When all was settled and done the Foxes ended up taking 2nd (Adam Wellen), 3rd (Matt Rubenacker), 4th (Logan Hunt), 5th (Hunter Braden), 6th (Kaden Richards), 7th (Theron Smith) and 8th (Trenton Butler). By pack running, the Foxes top 7 runners were within 3 seconds of each other. The Foxes took 1st Place overall with a score of 20 points.
Lots of parents and friends made the short trip to cheer on the teams. The Foxes next race is Saturday morning at the Olney Community College for the Olney Invitational.
