Race Report: Spartan Waterfront Classic

Mile 1 marker
BK Cross Country runners participated in the 2nd Annual Spartan Waterfront Classic held at Hamlin Beach State Park.

The cool temperatures and stiff lake winds were not able to slow down our BK endurance athletes! In fact, we posted some of the best results of our season at this race.

Leading the girls modified team was eighth
 grader Liliana Hanning who pushed hard for a 7:29 first mile and finished 32 out of 105 runners with a time of 15:42 for this two-mile run. Jenna Bottcher and Rosemarie Feller ran stride-for-stride together for a first mile time of 8:38 seconds. Jenna crossed the two-mile finish line at 17:07 with Rosemarie at 18:06.

Sophomore Zoe Farraro ran solo for girls varsity and finished the 3.1 mile course in 26:10.

Boys varsity runner Sean Carroll ran a fantastic race to finish 35 out of 147 runners with a 3.1 mile time of 19:52.
