Record Result at the Regional Qualifier!
Congratulations to all of our Sparkman Cross Country Team runners on their performances in the Regional Qualifying meet.
We had individual State Qualifiers, A NEW SPARKMAN BOYS RECORD, a Boys Team finish of 3rd and for the first time in 16 years … our Sparkman Boys qualified a TEAM for State!
For the girls, Junior Hailey Brown not only PR’d in the 5k, she made the “All Section Team” and individually qualified to compete at State!!!
Also setting new “personal record” times in the 5k were, Soph. Makayla Tomaino, 7th grader Baily Wallace and Sr. Kaitlyn Williams.
For the Boys team It was Senior Seth Graham leading the way! Seth took an Individual 2nd PLACE, made the “All Section Team” and set a NEW SPARKMAN BOYS RECORD in the 5k distance! That’s the way to leave your mark as a Senior!
Also making the “All Section Team” was Jr. Harrison Miller who finished 10th with a new PR time!
We had another 4 Senators finish with PR times in the 5k Distance.
These were – Sr. Bailey Herfurth, Soph. Jake Maier, Fresh. Shafi Muhammad and Monrovia Middle 7th grader Austin Al-Dajaili.
Our State Qualifying Team was made up of – Seth Graham, Harrison Miller, Jake Russell, Bailey Herfurth, John-David Ray, Shafi Muhammad and Jake Maier.
While we have had several, State Qualifying runners over the past few years, to qualify as a team you must have at least 5, top point scoring runners in the event. We had 5 PLUS two more alternates.
It’s been a GREAT season for all our CC runners and we look foreword to seeing our Senators compete at STATE!
The Team Motto: I don’t stop when I’m tired, I quit when I’m done!! GO SENATORS!!
