ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Mid-Prairie hosted the conference cross country meet on a chilly evening on Thursday, October 13, at the Iowa City Kickers Soccer Complex. The cold temperatures did nothing to stop the impressive show of ability on many of the athlete's final meet of the season. About half of the runners would be running two days later at the state meet in Ankeny, so they had instructions to take it easier than usual so they could run their best at state. For the rest of the runners, their instructions were to make it their best race yet, and they executed those orders perfectly.

The girls team had a lot of runners make huge PR's for their final race of the season. Terra Richardson led the way with taking over three minutes off her previous best two mile race time, finishing in 17:16. Alia Clark, Olivia Caskey, Meredith Blossom, and Kennedy Roth were other big movers of the evening - all close to taking two minutes off their previous best times of the season. It was fun way for them to cap off their cross country season.

The boys also had some big improvements on their side of the race. Gibson Lowenberg took nearly two minutes off his previous best time. Ty Carey and Ethan Bontrager were also able to make some big moves in their times. Nearly everyon on the team had faster times at conference than when we ran on this course two weeks ago. Even with trying to hold back a bit to run our best at state, this shows the kids just how much they are continuing to improve.
