State Cross Country Meet

We were at the State HS Cross Country meet at Arapahoe County Fairgrounds all day. Working the Meet as course Marshalls and then watching Zach and the 5A Boys race at 1:00.

Smoky Hill came in 7th overall. They all ran a good strong race but nobody really peaked and ran a great race which is what they needed. Zach ran a 17:46 coming in 76th overall and the #4 Smoky Runny. It was windy and hot and dusty but it was definitely a cross country race and they all ran in the same conditions. I am very proud of Zach he trained hard all season and pre-season. He improved a lot (taking 30 seconds off his pre-state time), had several PRs and was a team player and leader on his team. Congrats to all the boys and girls (who finished 12th) on a great season and fantastic job to the coaches.

Chipman's son Stephen did really well finishing 4th overall and leading his school Mountain Vista to 3rd overall, a surprising finish for the young team.
