The Boys Cross Country team placed third in their regional meet last Friday. Evan Bishop was the 1st place finisher at the regional, winning the race by more than a minute. In the process, Evan also broke the elusive 15-minute mark, setting a new all-time East Grand Rapids High School record with a time of 14:56! Just to put that in perspective, Evan ran at a pace of twelve-and-a-half miles per hour -- half the speed limit for vehicles in East Grand Rapids -- for an entire 3.1 mile cross country course.
Elijah Becker placed 2nd on the team and 5th overall with a time of 16:13. Enzo Metz placed 3rd on the team and 21st overall with a time of 17 minutes even. Eli Robinson, Caspar Dicke, Sean Coney, and Joseph Mooney all finished with times between 17:21 and 17:38 to round out an excellent team effort. Eli, Caspar, and Joseph all set personal-best times as well. With their 3rd place finish, the team has qualified for the State Meet on November 2nd.
