Raiders Off and Running!
Harvest Fall Classic Invitational. September 3rd, 2016
After a long and tough summer of running, The Raider Girls finally made their debut at The Harvest Fall Classic on a tough, hilly course with lots of twists and turns. Featuring the number 1 ranked team in Class A, Chicago Christian, the raiders had their work cut out for them. The Varsity started things off by tying Chicago Christian but settled for a 2nd place Team finish after the tie-breaker. Leading the Varsity were Individual Medalists Abby Schlenker, Ava Childs, and Courtney Knight all finishing in the Top 10. Rounding out the Top 5 for the Raiders were Alyssa Flores (19) and Katie King (31). Not to be outdone, The JV placed 2nd and had their own trifecta of medalists led by JV Champion Elizabeth Cizek, and medalists Julia Clingen (4) and Emma Johnson (9). Other notable Raiders included Allison Salt (14th), Angel Avila (18th), Sophie Nelson (19th) and Mikayla Jacoby (20th). With 9 athletes competing for the first time, we didn't know what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised. We appreciate the grit and determination all of you showed when competing!
Next meet is Saturday at First To The Finish in Peoria!
