It was within our power to win this meet, but I am unsure we, as a whole team, really wanted this otherwise our efforts would have been greater to prepare for this championship meet. It is not enough to want to be good. Life and running requires we have industriousness - that we work hard. I am optimistic because of the team’s enthusiasm to develop and improve, but it takes more than the desire to be good.  It takes a long term commitment to be the best you can be. It takes intentness, a dogged determination to overcome obstacles, bounce back from setbacks and always strive to achieve the goal to be the best we can be.

It has been a long time since we had an individual champion and I sure don’t take Nicky’s performance for granted. He ran like a true front runner, the leader of this team. He was mixing it up with two of the faster guys in the state and never wavered. It was a clutch performance and a legendary race. Beamer battled and edged Northern’s best while Pat put in another sub 18 performance and top 10 finish. Garcia was just seconds off a top 10 showing too. It was a good race by the freshman, Spencer, who almost made it to the All-Conference level. The JV guys ran well. The JV runners filled me with hope with their effort too. If it weren’t for some miscues, Grey might have won the race. Mitch had a typical great second half and ran a good time. Wes and Rooks competed well and represented the class of ’16 with honor. Deans, Boudreau and Enierga gutted out another race while Scott broke his toe (ouch). It was a good effort by all; however, being a champion requires more than being good. We are capable of more and will strive to be better in the future. You must want it though.
