The weather for our very early run on Saturday could not have been more ideal. 60 degree weather with sunshine is a great way to start the day! In the girls varsity race, Allie Franzen ran within 31 seconds of her best time, and led the ladies with an 11th place finish. Noel Slone (season best) and Devan Carrigan (28 seconds from a season best) worked diligently on closing the gap in our top 5 by finishing 27th and 30th respectively. Savannah Krift continued moving up in the varsity pack with a 39th place finish, just 7 seconds from a season best. Beam Kumkerd (15 seconds from a PR) and Sophie Loesch rounded out the Camels for the solid 6th place overall of 11 scoring teams.
In the boys race, Christian Slone led for more than half of the race before finishing 4th overall and within 18 seconds of his season best time. Sophomore Noah Slone starting the slide of season best times crushing his and finishing 11th. Jordan Hartig and Colton Conroy (SB) packed in tight for a 27th and 33rd place finish. Our next Camel pack was whirlwind with Brennan Perkins (Personal Best) in 46th, Adam Ruschman (14 seconds from a SB ) in 47th, and Anthony Ronnebaum (Personal Best) in 49th. This tight pack led the Camels to a 1-5 split of 2:01, and 4th place of 14 scoring teams. The Camels were also 3rd among regional competition, setting the stage for our goal of state qualifying in the upcoming weeks.
