Yesterday, your Cougar harriers defeated all-comers from the dozen private and public schools in attendance over the most intense course and conditions of the season. The first finisher in each race earned a trophy, while the subsequent six student-athletes earned medals. While our girls’ contingency did not field a complete team, Grace Marriott placed among the coveted top ten with ninth at 30:11, while Alex Nebel placed 13th in 33:13. In the boys’ contest, Larry Orsini won going away from some big diesel engines in 18:38 to earn the top spoils of the day, while Nick Daugherty placed 6th to also pick up metal (the medal). Will Conroy, running with a bloody and blistered foot, willed himself to a top ten finish overall in 23:00. Neophyte and future star, Braden Smith chased Conroy into the chute with a 23:31. Camden Michaud, without his trademark glasses, fell after tripping on a root in the thick forest, and found his way across the line in 26:31 to round out our top five seeds. Runner of the Week, Ben Thomas ran a personal best to finish in his goal time of 28:20, while Nathan Dunbar kicked across the line in 29:09. Grant Osgood, frosh up-and-comer, battling Osgood Schlatter’s Disease, finished in 30:39, while Alex Hogg ran a 31:09. Nick Smith kicked out into the chute just behind in 31:19. Hunter Cool finished close behind in 32:50. Nick Helm ran an even race for a 34:00 effort. Mike Janyska ran smartly for a 34:30, while Cal Kinard strode across the finish line in 37:05. Andrew Marriott outkicked a duo to finish in 38:02. Thank you for your continued support of our student-athletes as they pursue excellence in all endeavors. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting of athletes held at Mill Springs Academy at 4:00PM on 12 September.
