The Maranatha-hosted cross country meet at Zarda Farm on Oct. 1 left the majority of the team pleased. While the girls placed fifth overall, the boys medaled in third.

Twelve out of the 17 runners beat their personal records. At the end of the boys race, head coach Lisa Cowan said, “I think I’ll have to redo a bunch of goal shirts.”

“[Junior] Jackson [Vander Ark] beat his [personal record] by a full minute,” junior Joel Connealy said. “He’s never beaten me before.”

Vander Ark, after his race, said, “Great race. Great weather. Great course.”

The sun on the day of the meet reflected onto a lake, giving a beautiful center to what freshman Libby Paul called “the easiest trail.”

Right before the beginning of the girls race, senior Rose Campbell noticed a rope hanging off of a tree over the lake. While she just wanted to swing out on the rope, Campbell accidently let go and fell, drenching herself before the race.

Junior Luke Rovenstine placed third in the boys race. His younger brother, freshman Cooper Rovenstine, placed 13th.

Before the race, senior Nathan Beach said, “It’s senior year,” meaning that he wanted to finish his cross country career strong. Although he had a cold, he still pushed through and did his best.
