Petoskey hosts fun 2 mile race

On Wednesday, September 5, the varsity cross country team traveled to Petoskey for their second meet of the 2018 season. This meet was set up as a 2 mile race rather than the traditional 5k. During the race a skunk ran onto the course and sprayed Senior Tyler major and Sophomore Charlie Kennedy. “It got in my eye and it reeked” Major said. The race was short but eventful.

“I am very pleased with our team today and how they performed. It was nice to run somewhere new and race a different distance in a low-key environment. Falyn Mansfield ran a negative race (second mile was faster than the first) and that was the most impressive thing I saw tonight. It is rare to have a high school runner with such control over their pace.” said girls coach Sarah Furman.

Next Meet: Charlevoix Mud Run 9/08/2018 at 10:00 a.m.
