Impressive "also rans"
There were hundreds of high school students running this past week at Bassett Creek Park in the Lefty Wright cross country meet. These were kids from 25 metro schools, all of whom didn't make their varsity teams. The top seven runners who qualified for varsity would be running later in the week at their sectional meets. Inspiring to see these young men and women out running hard in likely the last race of the season, and for many seniors, perhaps the last race of their running career. They put in hundreds of miles training. For those wondering about he younger generation, this was a great example that there are still many with a strong work ethic and willingness to train and work hard.
