Bryan Stoltzfus and Collin Keesling placed 33rd and 35th , respectively, to lead the Kats, but both missed qualifying for regional by one and two places, respectively.
While this ends our season, the boys made lots of progress this season. We only had two returning runners from last season, so five of our top seven were new to the sport, including our top two runners.
We will miss our two senior runners, Nathanael Elkin and Cooper Reed, next year. This was Cooper’s first year running and he brought a lot of positivity to our team and showed improvement all throughout the season. Nathanael ran all four years of high school and we will miss his leadership and consistency he brought to our team. Both young men have bright futures ahead of them as they head to college next year and both were named All-Academic NCC this season.
This season showed that we have a lot of promise for the future and we should return five of our seven runners next year and we will be looking to add more runners.
Thank you everyone for your support of our young team and we look forward to continuing to improve during the upcoming track season.
– Coach Ousley
