JR HIGH GIRL’S WIN BA INVITATIONAL. STAILEY HEARD WINS OVERALL CHAMPION!
Stormie Ramsey and Sydney Krehbiel ran extremely strong races, medalling in the top 10 with some great competition. They both were anxious to use this meet as a gauge as we returned to 5K competition, and we were all happy with the results. Leona Crowl and Demi Ernst continue to also run impressive races, each running personal best times despite a hilly and wet course. Khaige English is battling some pain, yet she continues to push through and be our 5th point scorer. 3 of our top 5 varsity boys ran personal best times in their first 5K race of the season. Caiden Henderson, Mason Quinton and Evan Quinton ended up creating a nice pack in the race and pushed themselves to a sub 18 minute finish for all three. I'm not sure they expected to see those times this early, but based on how they've performed in practice, we were not surprised at all! We really think, weather permitting, we will see those times drop even more this upcoming weekend. Mason and Evan were the fastest freshmen in the race, which is just another example of the impact they're making at the varsity level already. Edgar Borjas continues to race well and also broke under 19 minutes for the first time. We expect to see Micah Redman, Desmond Bible and Jordan Williams to continue to challenge each other for the 5-6- and 7 varsity spots. They work well together and should keep shaving time off. This weekend we will take some of our top runners to compete at the Missouri Southern State University "Southern Stampede" Our other 6th grade and JV/Varsity runners will compete at Sand Springs this weekend. Our 7th/8th grade teams will be off this week. From Jeremy Lusk: The Sapulpa Junior High girls continued their undefeated season as they won the Broken Arrow Invitational. Stailee Heard also stayed undefeated individually by winning the 1.55 mile race with a time of 9:34. Taylor Bilby finished in 8th and Jasmine Brown finished in the top 15 as well. The Lady Chieftains ended up with 9 runners in the top 32 despite missing one of their top runners in Ella Chaffin who is recovering from an injury. I’m so impressed with the work ethic and the way these young ladies push each other to be better runners and better people week in and week out. We have great leaders and runners who know what it takes to compete and be champions. The Sapulpa Junior High boys finished 5th and Aj Jernegan finished third overall in the 1.55 mile race. Jaxson Lary had a top 20 finish as he came across the line in 18th place. I know the boys are going to keep improving and is looking forward to having a strong finish to the season. Jayden Williams has been running through pain and I am hoping he can get healthy and to fill speed by the end of the season. We also have some 6th graders that will run up and help is later in the year, including Kyle Haught, who won last week’s race at the Sapulpa Invitational
