“We are always excited to compete at the Carlisle Invite. There is a big field with some of the best teams in Pennsylvania and the Mid Atlantic region. Reese ran a terrific race breaking 17 minutes for the first time.  After running 17:04 less than a week ago Caden was ready for a big race. Unfortunately that didn’t happen but Caden will rebound. And, 17:24 is still a pretty nice effort no matter what. Wyatt is only a freshman but he runs fearlessly with another pr today. Cody is a rock and ran solid for us again. We considered putting Koy in freshmen race but decided on varsity for the day. He came up big sealing our final scoring spot. Oden brothers Styers and Hart continue to help in their pusher positions.
In the freshmen race Aidan Scavitti was 17 (19:06), Hoyt Rodenbaugh 19th (19:25), Cameron Treaster 42 (21:17), Logan Breneman 54th (21:41),David Snyder 95th (24:08) and Justin Cox 96th (25:35).  The young Huskies placed 8th out of 18 teams.
“Aidan has been had a nice September and ran another nice race. Hoyt is just coming back and ran an amazing race. Camryn and Logan are solid in the line up’s middle. This is David’s first season and he is learning how to race setting a pr in the process. Justin put in a good performance.”
Senior Nathan Goss was the only  Husky in the
Jayvee field. Goss finished in 26:28.
“We were hoping for a little better time from Nathan today but he did his best. We look forward to his next race.”
The Huskies return home to Reedsville to face Altoona Wednesday afternoon.
