Week 6

Sunday, September 22 2019


Week 5 Recap: On Tuesday we had the opportunity to compete at Hart's Woods Park in Round Lake. We were really impressed with how well the team competed. Gretchen Good followed by Sarah Lucier and Danika Dortch, led a 1, 2, 3 finish by the Eagles to claim a victory over Round Lake! Gavin Murrie, Aidan Gillespie, and Micah Lind turned in top 10 performances to lead the boys.

The weather wreaked havoc on the planned meet at Warren High School. We had the opportunity instead to travel to Zion to race at Shiloh Park. The hot, humid weather made for some tough race conditions. However, we had many outstanding performances. The FS Girls team claimed 3rd place overall! Becca Runyan WON the race despite taking a wrong turn. Not far behind her were Maddie Perez (3) and Krista Gfesser (7). In the Varsity Boys, RJ Migas put together his fastest race of the season to finish 15th overall! Nathan Rolla was in the top 20 FS Boys all race and claimed 18th.  Overall the racing for the Eagles was awesome. Looking at the data, the majority of athletes raced smarter for the whole race with more athletes than usual finishing with their fastest mile at the end. This sets us up for an exciting second half of our season!

Week 6 Preview: It's homecoming week! We have no weekly dual meet this week. On Saturday, for the first time ever, we are splitting the team. The Girls team received entry into the Palatine Meet of Champions and will compete at Deer Grove East Forest Preserve. The Boys team (we tried to also get the Boys into Palatine) will be defending their JT Taylor Grant Invite title in Ingleside. We are excited for the opportunity to compete at both meets.

Shout Out: Our week 3 Athletes of the week were Gabby King and Gavin Murrie. We are proud to have these athletes represent us.

We had several athletes take over a minute off of their PR. Congrats to Akash Patel, Brandon Parsin, and Thea Lungay
