Cross Country Runs for New Successes


This upcoming season, both the boys and the girls cross country teams are looking to improve their records from the previous season and make this year the best one yet.

As the reigning NLCC conference champions, the boys cross country team is looking to top their nearly perfect season last year. After the Sequoits’ top runner junior Charlie Smith finished in the top ten at state last year, the expectations for this season are greater than ever. With their multiple invite wins and successful individual races in 2017, the boys team have the talent to make this another record-breaking season.

The boys aren’t the only ones who have a lot to prove in the 2018 season. The girls cross country team has also set big goals for this fall.

“Our biggest goal for this season is to push each other at every meet,” sophomore Amber Carson said. “We plan on achieving this by keeping a positive attitude and making good connections with our teammates so we can push each other to be better.”

After an average season last year, the girls are hoping to improve their placements at the big races and hopefully bring some invitational wins back to Antioch. Senior captain Natalie Hill, one of the team’s top runners, has the potential to have an amazing year and is someone to be looking out for this fall.

Both the boys and the girls cross country teams have the talent and determination to have incredible seasons. It remains to be seen whether they will live up to their expectations for this season.
