🏃♂️ CROSS COUNTRY 🏃♀️
9/22 - Varsity at Potawatomi Wildlife Park - complete results
TIPPECANOE - by Lisa Bemish - The unofficial Senior Night for Triton Cross Country was held at the last home meet of the season Thursday evening. Lone senior Anna McIntyre was honored by Coach Faulkner. It was another emotional run for Anna. Coach and her family came out earlier in the day to set up the course and posted signs to all the team members encouraging them along. Thanks to Faulkners, memorable moments were made along the way. Anna's sign hit her heart as it pushed her to yet another personal record. Anna took yet another minute and a half off her time. Coach Joe White said it was the cool winds of fall that propelled all the runners to new PR's at Potawatomi Park. Argos and LaVille did not have enough runners for a team. South Bend Career Academy had a boys team but no girl runners. Triton Boys pulled out a win over SBCA 25 to 30. Six out of the seven Trojans set records. The same goes for the Lady Trojans. Four out of six set new records for themselves!
