The boys cross country team competed in its first meet of the year Saturday at the Lavern Gibson Championship course in Terre Haute. The Valley Cross Kick Off is just that–a chance to race against other teams, but it is an unscored meet which a good meet to shake off the rust and allow the freshmen to get their feet wet.
Several boys ran well. The team was led by Nik Pensyl, Emerson Bostic, Jacob Beene, Robby Bogdajewicz, and Josh Springborn. Others with great races and PRs were Aiden Wright and Josh Barnett, Birch Floyd, Colin Horner, and Alex Matthews.
The boys are back in action next Saturday at the Plainfield Relays.
