When your legs can’t run anymore, run with your heart.”

Striding legs, pumping arms, heavy breathing are just a few things that describe the 2018 State Cross Country meet held in Lewiston, Idaho. The Grace Cross Country team was able to qualify eight people to run at the famous meet: Trevor Judd, Michael Anderson, Zoeigh Walker, Nele Buerger, Brinklee Holyoak, Lana Burrel, and Courtney Thomas. These amazing athletes all were able to beat the clock at districts in Malad Idaho in order to qualify for the Lewiston meet.

The team left the high school on October 25 at 11:30 am. Cheered on by the whole student body, the team sauntered through the hall way, feeling quite proud of their school and themselves. The team was escorted by the fire department until the end of town. From there, the bus traveled six hours up to Missoula Montana where the team rested at a hotel. The last stretch consisted of four hours on the bus until they arrived at the course. The next was the big day….The race.

The day started out cool and calm as the team approached the course. The girl’s race started at 10:30 am and the boy’s started at 12:15 pm. As the time came, the girls all lined up. “On your mark…..set…..” BAM. The race is off! Runner Zoeigh Walker told us, “It was really easy to breathe, but not long after the race, my legs were killing me.” All of the team of girls each got their season PR (personal record) and first five of the girls team all finished within fifteen seconds of each other, which has never happened in Grace Girls Cross Country history! For the boys, Trevor Judd got an all time PR and Michael Anderson also got a fantastic time. Great job to all of the runners at cross country state this year! What a great way to wrap up the eventful season of cross country!
