From Coach Meganmarie Dennis:
The Pacer Harriers competed in the ORVC Conference Meet last Saturday. The Top 12 finishers earn All Conference Honors.
Both boys ran well, they were both All Conference performers and were very close to their PR’s for the ORVC race on a historically difficult course. Julio Regrueira Prats placed 7th overall and ran an 18:49, Nathan Furnish placed 12th overall and ran a 19:04, achieving his goal of being All-Conference as a freshman.
The Girl’s team placed 4th overall with 2 more runners becoming All Conference performers. Gracie White placed 4th with a time of 22:07 and Alisha Detmer placed 5th with a time of 22:12. Senior Allison Detmer placed 20th overall with a time of 26:14. Ning Wang placed 24th overall with a time of 28:52. Angela Granieri battled back from an injury this season to finish off our team as our 5th runner, she placed 29th with a time of 37:22.
All the athletes have shown tremendous improvement throughout the season due to their work ethic in training and competed exceptionally well on Saturday. They are in tournament season now where they will compete to continue their season.
We are excited to head back to the Hanover College course (a course that has hosted the DIII National Championships) this Saturday to compete in the Sectional. The boys race begins at 10:30 AM with the girls race to follow.
