Archbold Invitational Recap

2016-archbold-kayla-kennedy

Recap: Wet, wet, wet.  In years past, the Archbold meet was always sweatshirt-cold at the start and blazing hot by the end.  Not this year. It was overcast from start to finish, and right on cue the rain started pouring as the Middle School girls kicked off their race.

Kayla and Kennedy again worked together through this race, pacing and pushing each other until the final half mile when Kayla pulled a head to a new personal record time.  Kennedy was only a second behind her season best and was over 40 seconds faster than last year. Izzy also ran really well in her first ever cross country race!

On the boys side, Chris continues to see the results of his hard work over the summer as he set a new personal record and ran over two minutes faster than his time at Archbold last year. Owen just missed his PR by two seconds, and Will turned in another solid effort.

Here are the results for the Middle School:

Last Name First Name Finish Place
Barkhimer Izzy 19:56 82
Keller Kennedy 14:37 13
Gleckler Kayla 14:20 11
Hartzell Chris 15:34 86
Bryson Owen 18:17 137
Thomas William 17:24 125

A very solid outing by our Middle School runners heading into a fun meet next weekend.

Full Event Results are available on Baumspage.

Up Next: The Middle School travels to Harrison Lake State Park for the Fayette Invitational (hopefully with no rain this year!).
