Cross Country puts first 5K under their belt

Cross Country competed in their first 5K over Labor Day weekend. “The athletes exceeded expectations,” coach Khera Vay said.

Increasing the distance, the cross country teams ran their first 5K of the season over Labor Day weekend at Saturday’s Marcus Coach T Invitational.

“This was our first 5K of the season, and although anxious going into the meet because we have practiced a lot without a true competition, the athletes exceeded expectations,” coach Khera Vay said. “We had nine personal career best and 19 returners performed better than they did last year in the same week and same location.”

Senior Cade Krug beat his previous best time by 1:07.

“I felt really good about my performance last meet because of my PR and overall how I was feeling during the race,” Krug said.

Sophomore Cailtlyn Ruback is using the first 5K as an indicator of what she needs to work on moving forward in the season.

“Knowing that it was our first 5K of the season I didn’t want to die out, so I would say I saved too much energy and I could’ve gone faster,” Ruback said. “I will work on starting out faster and also work on having negative splits throughout the race.”
