Huskies XC sees dedication of runners in team Time trials

On your mark…get set…GO!!!!

And the they are off, Saturday the MIfflin County Cross Country team held its  time trials to see where their runners stood.

Normally, the team would be competing in the Big Valley invitational this time of year but due to the Covid-19 pandemic it was cancelled until next year.

“I think it was very important to have time trials today in place of the BVI because the girls have been running for four or five months and petty much on their own and they needed to see that all their hard work that they’ve been doing on their own has paid off,” said MIfflin County girls cross country coach Freed said. “We are at a fantastic start for the season. We had faster times and stronger times than we had in the past.”

The time trials also gave the team a chance to get out and run in a competitive environment since there is still a few weeks before they start their official season.

“We have another three weeks before we have a meet so we are going to keep building and going in the right direction. We have specific times we can work off of.”

On the boys side, the team also did a good job at the trials.

“I think it was good for the kids to get out. It’s been a long time we’ve been able to compete, even though it was just our team and just a time trial,” boys coach Loht said. “It was nice for the kids to compete and come out and run fast. The kids got to see the benefit of the hard work they did on their own. It was great to see the kids out. It was a beautiful day. It was a great day to be a runner.”
