Predators News · A Day of PRs at the Fox Creek Invitational

  Place Points
Fox Creek High School 3rd 75

Seventeen Fox Creek ran their Personal Records on Saturday at the Fox Creek Invitational. Both varsity teams finished 3rd in the 11 school event. Perfect weather, a good crowd, and home cooking helped the runners have a good day.

The girls team was led by Natalie, who ran her season best time, to finish in 7th place. Juliana broke 25 minutes for the first time to finish in 13th place. Annaleigh and Anna ran together for much of the race to finish in 16th and 17th. Jessica was the final scorer for Fox Creek. Alaynah continued to improve her time in races, as she gets back into form, after suffering an injury over the summer. Without Brennley, the girls team finished 11 points back from region rival, Gilbert. The two teams are headed for a big showdown to determine the region championship on Oct. 21. That race will be held on the same Fox Creek course.

The boys team was led by Trey, who broke 19 minutes for the first time this season, to finish in 5th place. Sean and Mark both ran PRs to finish 10th and 15th, respectively. Sean is only 30 seconds away from earning a steak dinner at TBonz! Thomas and Bryson completed the scoring for the Predators. Logan and Cannon were the other varsity runners today. Thomas, Logan, and Cannon all ran PRs, too! What a great day for the boys team. The boys defeated the Gilbert boys by 20 points, even without #3 runner Dalton. The boys are in the driver’s seat with only 18 days to go until the region championship.

Not to be outdone, the JV teams probably put on the most impressive show, with 8 runners setting their PRs. Some of the JV runners improved their times by 3 or 4 minutes over the 5K course.
