This past weekend the Cross Country team competed at the West Seneca West Invitational. They Boy’s team competed and placed 3rd out of 14 teams attending the race. Their efforts were strong enough to take home a third place trophy and marks the first time the team has taken home a team award from this invitational. In the race the boys had a tight group of runners that were led by Nick Abdo, Zack Peterman, Brett Russell, Nathan Myers and Austin Yetter. Casey Waterman and Mikey Evens ran well.
The Girls competed with just 5 athletes. Elle Russell, Evelyn Smith, Gwen Fruehauf, Jaime Dickenson and Grace Wotjkowiak. This solid group of 5 girls raced well and took 2nd place at the invitation. This was the highest place the girls team has achieved in the 9 years Springville has been competing at this event.
