Your heart is pumping; you can feel everything around you go silent. The gun raises to the sky above, and all at once the day seems to stand still for a sli…BOOM. Everything snaps back to reality, and your flight or fight instincts kick into action as you sprint from the start line. Come witness this as the Men’s Cross Country Team will running at the Sectional race on Saturday.

Bailey Scott, the defending champ, looks like a strong competitor to take first again this year. After a strong run at the HIC race last Saturday with a 16:47, which destroyed West Lafayette’s varsity sweep, Scott looks very fierce to any competition.

Roland Trusty, the lone senior, takes the 2018 season in stride as he continues to run the fastest times of his life. Trusty took full leadership as Team Captain this season. Trusty ran a 23:09 at the start of the year, and he has dropped 4:21 seconds to a 19:28.

“I have made it my goal this year to drop as much time as possible,” said Trusty. “With our #1 fan Paul Price, who faces some health issues, being unable to attend our meets, I feel that one way I can give back to him for the years of support and love to the Lewis Cass Cross Country Team is to live up to Paul’s words to remember while running, ‘all you need is hard work and dedication to insane courage and you can do anything.’”

Carl Jay, a strong second, hopes to help have a solid placing on Saturday with a good run. Jay has had his best season yet, shattering his personal record by 30 seconds to a 17:30, wants to continue his season for the next few weeks by progressing on to the Regional, and just maybe Semi-state races.

Samuel Miller, a junior runner, decided he needed to pick up the pace at the Hoosier Conference race, snagging the seventh varsity spot, to run at the Logansport Sectional. Miller ran fantastically last Saturday, dropping 3 minutes, in fact, he ran one of his best races ever.

Overall, Lewis Cass looks to be going strong on both ends of the Varsity Seven. They should be able to move on as a team to the Regional at Culver Military Academy.  Coach Bonsett has high hopes for the team, and he thinks that if the runners keep their focus that they should move on to regionals. Bonsett also thinks that there is no reason that Scott and Jay should not make it to Semi-state this year.

Remember on Saturday, October 6, the Lewis Cass Men’s Cross Country Team will be running in the Sectional Race at Logansport, 11 o’clock sharp!  Admission is $5 per carload of people(dogs included). Please come out and support the Kings!

    Hey this seems interesting, it kind of makes me regret not being good at long distance. Just thinking about the moment before a race makes my heart beat faster. Theres nothing in the world like the exhilaration you feel right before the gun goes off. I also might drop by to see how the race goes. Aside from that, best of luck to you!

    Nicely written article Carl. I’m glad you included both ends of the varsity to show that it’s not just the people at the top having the improved times. Hope the remainder of the season goes well for the team

    Great article Carl! I love how you explained how much time each person dropped and described how people ran. Your writing is really great as far as using quotes and thoughts of more than one person.

    Great article Carl. I really enjoyed how you described how most of the varsity will do in
    Sectionals. I enjoyed how Ronald Trusty is running for Paul Price. Keep up the amazing work.
