As the Fall 2010 Cross Country team gets ready for district season to begin, the team pushes each other to work harder individually and together despite having to wake up really early for morning practices before school starts.
District meet will be on Saturday, October 30th and further information will be posted regarding the meet.
The Varsity Lady Vols placed as fifth at the Southwest meet, seventh at the North East meet, and second at the Central Catholic meet as their record.
As for the record of the Varsity Boys, the boys placed in seventh at the Southwest meet, tenth at the Northeast meet, and finished in third place at the Central Catholic meet.
“Our expectations are that both our varsity boys and girls teams make top three at district and move on to regionals,” said Coach Theilengerdes.
“The team are excellent students in the classroom and are great runners,” the assistant Cross Country coach, Coach Barrera said. Coach Barrera is the new assistant coach this year; she was a former student who attended Lee and graduated in the Class of 2003. “They strive to do their best everyday. The senior runners are positive role models to the under class men and encourage them to do their best. Every runner embodies the power of what TEAM stands for. Encouraging each other, picking each other up when someone feels they did not run well.”
The returning lettermen runners for Cross Country team are TC Heydon, sophomore Caleb E., senior Mario G., a senior, Marlyn Campa, junior Cameron B., sophomore Brittany S., and sophomore Bianca G.
Senior TC Heydon, a senior, sophomore Caleb E., and a sophomore are outstanding boy runners on the team.
Outstanding girl runners are junior Marlyn Campa, junior Cameron B., and sophomore Brittany S..
For motivation the runners always meets as a team to have a talk before each race, and then the boys and girls get in a circle before each race and have their own chant and cheer.
Come out to support the Volunteers at their upcoming meets.
