There was a lot of pressure for the varsity girls to perform for their pre-regional meet in Allendale Friday! They were adamant that Friday would not be their last race, so it would require them to move up in the race to score points. In a tight race with Holland Christian, the girls got 4th place by a 21 point margain to go on to the regionals next week! Racing is not only about pace and effort, it is about sticking with other runners who will affect the race scoring. The girls did a good job of moving up together and sticking with groups in the race! Maggie Duba ran a 19:23 and was 7th in the region! It is not easy to earn a personal record after already running a school record time the previous race! Even in the cold and rainy race conditions, Maggie had a lot of confidence and mental strength to stay in the top of the race, which is why she keeps running these impressive times! Abby Druelle took second on varsity with her best time this year of a 20:33! Abby has grown a lot into the sport and towards the end of the season has made significant improvements when it has counted! Lily LeSarge also had a PR day of 20:46! Lily is another freshman who has run their best times at the end and has grown well into the sport! Nathalie Strockis ran a 21:17 and Lainey Roth ran a 21:53 which are their season records! Their attitudes and work ethic help them hit their goals in the race and help their teammates to not settle in during the race! Claire Smith and Maggie McKeiver rounded out the varsity with hard fought races, passing opponents that made it vital for moving on to next week! The coaches are proud of this team's commitment and ability to perform when asked to do so! That all being said, this is an important week of practices of staying healthy to have a good race at Regionals! For the JV girls, Saturday took them to the Last Chance Meet in Hudsonville. Racing PR's were Heidi Schulten, who took almost a minute off her previous season best!, and Julia Sanford, who overcame recent health issues to not only best this season's time by over a minute and a half, but ended her Senior year with the PR she's been chasing all year, from 24:28 last year to 23:21 yesterday! Good racing this weekend, girls, and good luck at Regionals!
