DASH High School Cross Country 2014 Westosha Central Meet Report

Hello DASH families,

The DASH high school cross country competed in the Westosha Central Falcon Invite yesterday at Fox River Park in Kenosha County. Fox River Park may be the most perfect setting I have ever seen for a cross country race, and yesterday the weather was absolutely pristine. Unfortunately, we had a meet the previous Thursday and the team will be racing again this Saturday morning in Rochester. We decided to only start seven athletes total, and either let the athletes do their normal Thursday activities or rest up for Saturday. It was probably our last race in this perfect setting for awhile. I need to find a race where that will fit better into everyone’s schedule next year.

The girls were led by Andrea Beck once again. Andrea is running well right now and tied her personal record while making it look routine. Lucretia Nyhart keeps getting faster with each race which is why the coach had her run. She earned a meet t-shirt for her efforts. Kayla Bruton ran conservatively. She injured herself playing volleyball recently, but looks like she should be ready for our last race. Jessy Homa ran much better this week and definitely enjoyed racing in beautiful Fox River Park. Andrea Coulter really ran well and lowered her personal best time by over a minute to finish as our 5th scorer. Stefanie Klaves let some doubts get into her head and did not run her best. We have to get her thinking more positively next time.

Joe Hughes is from Kenosha and he would not miss a chance to run on this course. He put in a routine 19:18. It was a good workout for him to get him ready for the big races ahead.

We ended up with many more DASH fans than I expected. I counted nine on hand to cheer for the seven athletes. Thanks go out to all of them. Thanks to Zipporah Caspers who helped me with the photos. She will be racing next time. Now we are off to Rochester. The championships await.

Take care,
Jim Caspers
