Region 3 Invitational

The Region 3 Invitational is this Saturday at Franklin at Sandy Hook Elementary School--the same place we raced recently.  The course, apparently, has been modified a bit, to add distance.  We will see, I suppose.

Anyhow, the races begin at 10am (probably with Junior High girls).  Our bus departs at 7:45 sharp.

Home Meet Breakdown

Well, we pulled off another great event.  Thanks to all helpers and parents for making it as special as possible.

Starting with the Varsity Boys:  Colton Beck ran an 18:32 in his first home race.  Wow.  Congratulations.  We have great hope for your future, Colton!  Following Colton, Erik, Devin, Jacob, and Dakota all broke 20 minutes.  Good job!  Many PRs!

Varsity Girls:  We beat Titusville!  This means we finished 7-1 for 2nd place in Region 3.  That's a great year for us.

Beka won in 20:20.  Great time...peaking at the right time, too!  Following Beka, we had positions 5, 6, 7, 9 and 16.  Very nice.  Karley, Emily and Maddie were all grouped together for a great sprint finish that was fun to watch. Erika and Lexie were not far behind.  Lexie ran a 25:41.  Nice job all!

Jr. High Boys:  Ryland made a run for beating Cambridge's top 3, but it didn't pan out.  Still a 13:34 is fast!  Following Ryland, we had Max, Shea and Landon all close together, then Nathan and Isaac, Conrad, Anthony and Dustin brought us home.  We lost to Cambridge which put us at 7-1 for second place in the Region.  Great season, boys!

Jr. High Girls:  Paige won again! Great finish, Paige--15:26.  Cassidy came in 5th for a nice finish, too.  Congrats to our girls!

I am very proud of our team this season.

One more to go for Jr. High--the Region 3 championship at Franklin on the 22nd.  We will be ready.

Twitter Feed and Franklin Tri-Meet

Check out our twitter feed at @shscrosscountry to see how The Panther Press (@PantherPressSHS) covers all of Saegertown's events.  They give us great coverage.  Thanks to all the Tweeters!

Great races at Franklin as our Varsity Girls moved to 5-1 on the season and our Jr. High Boys go 6-0.  Next week's home meet will decide who wins the Region.  Our girls will need some help as Oil City is currently 6-0 and have beaten us already.  The boys will need to knock off Cambridge Springs, which will be an uphill battle.  But we have plenty of "uphills" here on our course, so we will see what happens!

A special shout out to all of our runners who PRed at Franklin.  We'll take it. We did have a few winners yesterday:  Paige won the Jr. High Girls race, Ryland won the Boys.  New addition Max F. was 4th in his first race as a Panther harrier.  Murph led our Varsity boys for the first time and Beka (followed by four in a row to place positions 2-6 overall) only trailed state qualifier Savanna Carr from Franklin.  

Great performances, Panthers!

Cochranton Invitational 2016 Results

Wish you were a Saegertown Panther!

We had a great day yesterday.  Most of our runners had personal best times, called PRs (personal records).  When that happens, it means we are peaking at the right time.  

Very proud of our team!

Here is a link to the results:  Race Results

Also, our race this Tuesday is at Sandy Creek Elementary School in Franklin, which is directly across from the high school. Check out the schedule above to see depart times.

We are gearing up for the end of the season.  We will see what happens...I think we are exactly where we want to be.

Cochranton Invitational 2016

Please check out the race times for the Cochranton Invitational 2016 above.  The race is at the Cochranton Elementary School, which is straight through the red light in town (as you're coming from Saegertown, still heading south).  The elementary school is on your left a 1/2 mile (??) after the light.
