The Big Red Express competed on October 20 in the District Cross Country Championship Race at Voice of America Park in West Chester. In the 14 team field, the Lancers finished a very respectable 5th. Unfortunately, only the top 4 teams qualify to run in the regional meet in Troy, OH Oct 27, so the Lancers' team season ended today one spot out of the running. Good work this season guys!
But Wait! There's more. Senior Ryan Crail was the second Lancer to cross the finish line and 13th overall just 1.5 seconds off his best time ever at 16:32.50. Senior Nick Vogt was the first Lancer across the line in seventh place overall, running his best time ever by 10 seconds and nearing that 16:00 mark at 16:07.20.
The top 16 runners qualify as individuals to the regional meet, so Crail and Vogt are regional bound! Congratulations Ryan and Nick!
