So proud of the boys from B-Town who took first in the Region 6 Cross Country Championships yesterday! This was truly a thrilling win for BHS. They haven't been the region champs for 16 years -- in all of Parker's lifetime! Parker's buddy and co-runner Cubby took first place overall. Parker took 5th -- not quite where he had hoped to place, but a respectable finish nonetheless.... just seconds after the first four finishers. He ran the course in 16:06. He was 2nd place on his team. All the participants ran their hearts out... and one of Parker's teammates even took a diving leap over the finish line -- helping the team clinch the title with that heroic effort.
The state meet is in two weeks, and BHS will be well represented. This is an amazing group of boys, who are so supportive and encouraging to one another. It's always so wonderful to see how they cheer each other on. The girls' team made it to state, as well. Can't wait to watch that exciting race.
Way to go Braves!!!
