Our 3rd meet took place in Champaign on August 25th, where we competed against 29 schools. As with the prior 2 meets this year, Parkside dominated. Here is the writeup posted on the Parkside website:
The team had its most dominant performance in program history earning 28 out of 60 available medals. Logan Abeling and Brooke Gordon won the individual title in both varsity races. Alex Anderson won the open boys race and Kelsey Kinley was runner-up in the open girls race.
Here are the medal winners from Parkside for this event.
It was exciting to watch as over 500 athletes competed in 5 different running events. I took a lot of pictures and I would love to post them all, but I'm not sure the internet is big enough to absorb them, so I've condensed them down to a few dozen of the best. Enjoy!
The fastest time for the girls came from a Chiddix student.
The fastest time for the boys came from a Parkside student.
