Cross country in Twin Bridges
Teams face sprinklers and rain
Last weekend, Madison County cross country teams convened in Twin Bridges. The day started out dreary and cold, and progressed to become drearier and colder by the time the boys’ varsity runners lined up at 10:30 a.m. However, runners tend to prefer cooler temperatures instead of 85 and sunny.
Twin Bridge’s home team times are as followed: Morgan Hendrickson (18:21), Rob Dale (20:12), Will Morris (20:38), CJ Wayland (22:14) and Hunter Sager (22:56) Hendrickson PR’d with his time at this race. In a moment of camaraderie, Sager reached out to encourage a runner on a different team having a difficult time at the end of the race.
“Super proud coaches today,” Coach Melinda Legg of the Ennis cross country team said. Maida Knapton finished 12th (21:34.2) in the girls’ varsity division, a personal best. Wyatt Fredson ran his second fastest time in his high school career (22:04). Both Coach Legg and her assistant coach ran around the coarse to cheer their runners on at different points, and encouraged their other team members to do the same.
Sheridan’s Luke Dvorak finished first with a time of 17:30. He gets closer each meet to the Sheridan school record (16:46). Dvorak, for better or worse, has caught the running bug and pushes himself to improve every meet. Being first is not what satisfies him, but shredding seconds off his time does the trick. Simah Anson ran with the JV girls in Twin Bridges and finished with a time of 26:41.
