Meet Highlights

Unfoiled at Foyil & BA: ILCA’s Cross-Country Running Cru Update

            On another hot, summer afternoon, ILCA’s Meg, Jacob, and Caleb raced across the rolling links of Foyil’s cross-country course on Thursday, September 9th.

            After speeding towards the front of the opening 200m of the race, Meg—within minutes—methodically surpassed the four runners who began the race ahead of her. Consequently, as a result of her phenomenal running ability and work ethic, Meg recorded her third 1st-place finish of the season.

            Half-an-hour later, Jacob showcased his running ability by running with the utmost energy—earning tenth place and his second top-10 finish of the season.

            At both the Foyil and Broken Arrow meets this week, Caleb ran his best 5K times of the season, with his Broken Arrow time even surpassing his speed two days earlier at Foyil’s meet. Between the two races, Caleb outran dozens of other student-athletes this week.

            Jacob also shined at Broken Arrow’s meet. Ever-the-model of racing consistency, Jacob outran 75 other young men who competed in the 5K on Saturday.

            While running against some of the fastest young ladies in the state of Oklahoma, Meg outpaced almost 90 ladies—claiming her fifth medal of the season.

Way to go Cru!

All the Best,

Coach K
