Coaches constantly preach it – and they are excited when they see it.
Such was the case for Boone Central/Newman Grove Coach Tom Dickey after his teams’ runner-up performances Friday in the annual Boone Central Individual Invitational at the Albion Country Club.
“This turned out to be a really good meet for us!” Dickey exclaimed. “We had some simple goals and really met them all.
“Our main accomplishment was closing the gap on the Scotus teams, especially the girls. We also wanted to narrow the gaps between our team members and that was achieved very nicely by both teams.”
The BC/NG girls had an impressive day, finishing just 10 points behind champion Scotus (17-27) and well in front of third-place Stanton (63). The Cardinal boys held off O’Neill (51-54) while also placing second to Scotus (20).
The Cardinals had four Top 15 medalists in the girls race and a pair of medalsists in the boys competition.
“We’re getting some great improvement from our younger runners. Both Christina Stopak and Thomas Hosford really made impressive moves with some noticeable drops in times,” Dickey continued. “I was really pleased to get Hannah Schmitz through a race – she’s been struggling with some hamstring problems. Also making some big noise with major personal bests were Sam Stopak and Will Dyer.
“This improvement is showing me just how badly they all want to improve. Hopefully that will continue!”
