Boys Varsity Cross Country Season Wrap up

Game Date
Oct 23, 2020

Cold and rain greeted West Catholic for their pre-regional meet at Allendale! Only 5 guys ran Friday,so the objective was putting in their best effort and race of the season! Simon Plum lead the boys, getting a 19:17, an impressive 33 second personal best! He has had his sights on 19:30 for a while now, so the coaches were excited for him to get that the final race of the season! Matt Bouwhuis also had a big day, matching Simon with a 33 second personal record! Matt ran with purpose, and an effort to finish strong! Matt will be one of the veterans of the team next year, and hopes he can use this race as a building block for next year! Caleb Huizenga started the season with a 24:30 and finished Friday with a 21:06, best time of the season! Caleb has shown the commitment and drive to beat his time from the previous race and with that has been a great addition to the team! He will be a part of the senior leadership for next year! Caleb Levanduski ran a 23:30 and even though it was slower than he would have liked, he has also been someone on the team with a focus and drive! He has a lot of potential and coaches are excited to see where he goes in the sport! Finishing off the race was Brandon Petersen who had his best PR of the season with a 24:02, a minute and ten seconds faster! Brandon has a no quit attitude and a good effort at the end of each race! If he sticks with it, he is going to be a great contribution to the team next year at the varsity level! From all that has gone on this year, it was great to have a full season and for the most part, full health! For Kolbe and Jack who who couldn't run Friday, they would have surely put up good performances because we know the work they put in this season! In an unusual situation Saturday, Simon and Caleb Levanduski (2 5k's in 2 days?!?!), chose to toe the line again with Quinton Bauer at the Last Chance meet Saturday. After completing his soccer season, Quinton not only PR'd with an incredible 18:05!, but he won the meet! Simon somehow managed only one second slower after PR'ing the day before, and Caleb decided he will not choose to race two days in a row ever again! A majority of the team has just started their running career at West, so a lot of big things are still to come! Good job this weekend boys! Good way to finish the season!
