On a miserable hot, humid night for running, KV’s Lady Kougars ran the NCC Preview meet, a non-scoring event. Soph. Crystal Benitez continued to impress, placing 33rd in 23:58, her first time under 24 minutes! Her confidence and speed improve with each meet. Sr. Kaila Moskalick hustled home in 25:27, good for 47th place. Fr. Hazel Veldman ran her first varsity race, and despite a fall, sprinted home in 52nd place, with a time of 25:56. Veldman’s future is very bright. Breanna Rose was her usual solid self, placing 63rd in 26:56, while Ally Schumacher battled the elements to finish 75th in 29:00. These ladies continue to improve, looking to knock time off as the season progresses, building toward the NCC meet and sectional.
