Blue Devils Cross Country


During the 2018 fall season, Lisbon’s cross country team has 11 runners. This year is Mrs. Mundy’s first year as head coach and she is excited as ever for a great season. There are four senior runners: Katie Chludzinski, Katie Haifley, Reagan Emmerling, and Marisa Spooner. There are six runners new to the team this year: Haile Smith, Sam Spooner, Greggory Wright, Robert Mountz, Jacob Gushert, and Eliza Baker. Also, returning sophomore, Megan Chludzinski, leads the girls as their fastest runner.

The season started off with a great first meet. Every runner ran their best. Following were two weeks of bad weather and the team did not compete. At the Boardman Spartan Invitational this year on Sept 25th, the team had two runners, Eliza Baker and Sam Spooner, improve their times. The best race for the team as a whole was the East Palestine Rotary meet, where five team members earned their best time of the season. Eliza Baker and Sam Spooner both ran their best times by over four minutes. Katie Chludzinski and Katie Haifley ran their personal record by 15 seconds.
