Cross Country

The cross country running season kicked off this weekend with a 10 school meet at Tama Hills.

First, let’s talk a bit about the location. Tama Hills is a large recreational area for use primarily by U.S. Military personnel and their families that includes a baseball field, horseback riding trails, golf courses (regular, frisbee, and miniature), camp grounds, hiking trails, and a convenience store (more on that in a later post). It is a perfect location for cross country running and hosts every meet, including the regional finals later in the year.

A quite rustic course, the cross country route includes some very steep hills and one affectionately dubbed “killer hill”. ASIJ was dominant, taking the overwhelming majority of the top spots in both boys and girls events. And, of course, our favorite runner (in her first race ever) had a very strong outing.
