The Meadlander Invitational - LCXC

Kyler had his first invitational meet on Saturday.They split the boys up into grade level races - so he ran the sophmore race.
He had a great race. Finished 12th out of 98 sophmores who ran.
It was a 2.5 mile course and his time was 14:33.
This picture was taken when he came around the last (super sharp) corner into the chute... I LOVE the look of determination on his face.
He's got an amazing kick at the end of his races... he turned it on and passed this guy and another one in the chute... such an exciting finish.
His team took first place of all the school's sophmore teams... they had four runners in the top twelve.
That's how you win cross country meets. Having one or two fast guys is great... but having four or five who can consistantly perform like that wins meets. I'm so excited to see how these boys shape up over the next few years... it's going to be a fun ride.
