Junior High Cross Country

Junior High Cross Country

The junior high cross country team consists of Alexis Bricker and Megan Chludzinski. So far this season the girls have had a lot of fun. The team gets along well and has a good atmosphere. Megan’s favorite course is Boardman and Alexis likes Copeland Oaks. They both really enjoy cross country but do not enjoy the hot humid race days and speed workouts at the fairgrounds. The girls love the feeling of accomplishment after they run their hardest on the course.

The junior high runners have a 2 mile race. Megan ran her personal best of 14:35 at Columbiana. Alexis’s personal best is 15:35. Megan went out for cross country because her sisters run and enjoy it just as much as she does. Alexis joined the team because she wanted to try something new. Alexis’s favorite memory was from her first race this season, she was scared and did not know what to do, but her teammates helped her out. Megan’s favorite memory is playing “knock out” with the team at the annual pasta dinner. Both Alexis and Megan plan on running next year as well. Good luck to the team with the rest of their season!
