Both the girls and boys cross country teams had a great showing at the El Dorado meet on Saturday. The varsity and JV girls teams had an impressive showing, both taking first place in the meet. The varsity boys team took third, and the JV and C-team boys also won.

Coach Cory Swords, the boys coach, said, “I felt that our C team and JV did outstanding, but I felt that our varsity performed below what our expectations were.”

Swords praised particular runners for their excellent performance.

“Ethan Sundine had a three-minute personal best, and Dylan Morch had a 50-second season best to win the JV race and break into the top 7 on the team,” Swords said.

Other top performances came from junior Matt Harding, who placed first on varsity, and junior Claire Winter (fourth), and freshman Camille Behring (seventh).

Junior varsity second place went to senior Carly Honas.

She said, “I felt that for me personally the meet went really well, since the weather has been better lately. El Dorado can be a tough meet for some people because the course is so winding, so it’s mentally challenging, but I actually felt all right with [my performance].”

For all non-varsity runners, El Dorado was the second-to-last meet, with City League next weekend being their last. The junior varsity athletes really proved their worth on the team with their stellar performances, and although the varsity boys could have been happier with the meet, they acknowledged that it was still an important race for them.

Junior Adam Birch said, “We didn’t run great, but we learned from the race.”
