The Oakville Cross Country teams started their season off on August 31st in the Lutheran south invitational at Jefferson Barracks Park!

Three girls individually medaled; including Emily Bayer (6th), Halle Ezelle (7th), and Emma Mueller (20th). Other runners contributing to the varsity team include Lexi huether, Paige Pommer, Bridget Costello, and Mackenzie Montandon. For JV, Brianna McGee, Tori Hoffman, and Claire Durr all received medals!
The Boys team were very competitive as a team in their 1st race and are looking to really push each other to get better moving forward. The top 7 that make up the varsity team include Matt and Mark Pinner who are the most experienced seniors and have been good leaders for the others, Bradley Becker, Alex Crawford, Cameron Harrison, Jack Parcell, and Joey Miller. Newcomer Joey Miller finished 1st for the Varsity team in the very first race of his career which is not an easy thing to do!
It was a very solid first race for both the boys and the girls to get the season rolling. Now they know what to expect in upcoming races and we will be working hard to keep improving!
