CC – Finding Our Thrills on the Hills of Bishop Kelly and Stilly 

            On September 20th, the Elementary and Middle School Cross-Country Cru scampered across Bishop Kelley’s grassy hills, while Jacob represented the High School Cru on September 24th at the oldest Cross-Country race in the country: the OSU Jamboree! 

            Leading the Elementary Lady Cru, Dori outdistanced 53 other runners on her way to a time of 9:13, just in front of her teammate who is always nearby: Makena, who finished fifteen seconds afterward, in front of 50 runners. 

            While they did not finish together at Bishop Kelley this year, only four places separated the close friends and teammates, Evie and Emma! 

            In the Elementary Boys’ race, Samuel led the way this week, outrunning 43 runners and finishing in a time of 9:05. 

            Forty seconds later, James finished, enabling him to outpace 30 runners. 

            In a time of 11:11, Stephen proved able to run ahead of sixteen runners; similarly, Brilaynn showed his ability to finish his first-mile race of his career at Bishop Kelley. 

            Running their first two-mile races of their careers, Isaiah finished with the quick time of 15:46, outdistancing 74 other runners, while Wyatt clocked in at 18:32, faster than 35 fellow runners. 

            On Saturday, September 24th, meanwhile, Jacob willed himself up the many difficult hills that comprise OSU’s cross-country course in Stillwater. Despite the challenging terrain, he managed a 21:37, fast enough to outrun 50 runners.  

All the Best,

Coach K
