The El Dorado Cats Cross Country teams competed at the Andover Middle School Cross Country Meet this past Tuesday.
“The conditions were great for running—the temperature was in the mid-70s with a little wind,” said coach Les Limon.
Grace Myers was the top finisher for the Cats, coming in second in the 7th grade girls race at 6:23. Jaden McAdoo was not far behind, coming in 8th place with a time of 6:36.
“We had four runners medal in a very competitive cross-country meet at Andover where there were approximately 100 runners in each race. Grace Myers (2), Jaden McAdoo (8), Jolie Howland (3), and Timothy Kemboi (5) were our medalists,” said Limon.
For the 8th grade girls, Jolie Howland finished 3rd with a time of 9:49.
“As a team we are getting faster and more confident with our running. We will not be competing for a couple of weeks, which should help us in our training,” said Limon.
On the 8th grade boys side, Timothy Kemboi was 5th overall at 8:57.
The following runners had personal records: Dylan Brown, Tyler Luehrs, Garett Motter, Mason Paye, Andrew Tipton, McKenna Stewart and Lexi Bias.
“I am hoping we can do speed workout that will help our times and places in the last half of our season,” Limon.
Results: 8th girls
