This afternoon the LHS cross country runners ran a meet hosted by the Lions themselves and trekked through five muddy water crossings, unlike the usually one or two, placing well overall. The meet was held at DeKoevend Park and was called the Littleton Runners Roost Invitational.
“The course was interesting because of the water but it was easier in that there weren’t as many uphills,” said freshman Addie Icken.
“The water crossings were the roughest parts, the water in your shoes really drained your energy but you had to push yourself in order to get back to your normal pace,” said sophomore Phoebe Foster.
The difficult course did not stop the LHS Lions from doing their best. 4 of the girls placed in the top 30 runners, and freshman Addie Icken won 4th place. Sophomore Bruce Barnstable placed 7th in the boys category closely followed by teammates junior Colin Cannon in 10th place and senior Tommy Kail in 13th place. The boys team placed 4th overall and the girls placed 3rd overall.
“We did our best, and that’s what counts,” said Icken.
The cross country team continues to push hard to qualify individuals for state. They never fail to represent Littleton well and will be running and training hard as their season continues.
