Most people didn’t even enjoy being outside in the hot, muggy weather conditions last week. Imagine running 5K!
That was the task faced by cross country athletes at the season-opening Boone Central Invitational Friday at the Albion Country Club.
Boone Central/Newman Grove teams wilted a bit in the sweltering conditions and finished fifth in both the girls and boys divisions of the meet, not what the Cardinals were anticipating.
However, veteran Card Coach Tom Dickey feels his team will make great improvement now that they have a race in their legs.
“This was a really tough meet for us. The heat really seemed to suck the energy right out of the kids’ legs and left them pretty well done-in during the race,” Dickey commented. “This isn’t where I wanted us to finish, but I really think, in the end, we did as well as we could have. It is still early in the season and we always take huge steps forward after we get the first meet under our belts.”
