Girls Middle School Cross Country, Girls Varsity Cross Country · Improved Times For Lady Kougars at Harrison Invite; (Track and Field Sectional Title Plaque Available.)


On Saturday vs. many ranked teams from around the state, KV’s female cross runners all ran personal records (PR) or season-bests (SB).  Sophomore Crystal Benitez continues to impress, this meet knocking off a whopping nearly 50 seconds from her previous best time, finishing in 116th place in a fine time of 23:22.  Fr. Hazel Veldman also ran well, with a SB time of 24:18 on the challenging course, good for 135th.  Jr. Allison Schultheis, still just months removed from knee surgery, gutted out a SB time of 27:37, in 156th place, and classmate Kailee VanNieulande, in the best race of her career, was 157th, with a gigantic PR time of 28:27!!  Only 4 girls were available for this meet, as four teammates were recovering from various ailments and injuries; despite that, this was KV’s best meet (so far) of the season!  (Also, ANY track and field 2015 team member interested in purchasing a sectional championship plaque, please see Mr. Greenlee asap.  Thank you.)
