When your team constantly runs in combined races with huge amounts of runners, running at Regionals should be a piece of cake. Rye’s T-Bolt runners traveled to Lyons, CO for the St. Vrain Invitational and as in past meets ran against 30 other schools in 2A/3A races. “Lyons who hosted the meet, is the perennial favorite to win 2A cross country, and this year is no exception. We wanted to see how we stacked up against the best,” Coach TJ Blackhurst said. The teams have been doing combinations and working on technique and form, lifting weights, circuit and interval training, along with tempo runs.

The girls team finished in 14th place with Audrey Maroney placing in the top ten at 9th place with a time of 20:56. Coach Blackhurst feels she has a really good shot at breaking the school record she set last year. Clarissa Peterson came in at24:05; Raechel Lopez finished at 25:37 and had a season PR; Rebekah Moats at 25:37 set a PR; Lauren Maroney at 26:43; Emily Peterson at 27:15 with a season PR and Christina Kirkland at 34:47. “Our pack broke apart about a mile in, we wanted to lay it all out there and run at a faster pace,” Blackhurst said.

Rye only had three runners at this race and did not have enough runners to receive a team score for this meet. Schon Moore came in as the T-Bolts first runner at 19:26. Coach Blackhurst is hoping as the season wears on her will be able to cut some time off that. Joshua Garner had a 19:41 and is pushing to finish in the 18’s; Cavan Reilly finished at 26:22 and had a PR. The boys push each other in practice and during races as they look toward Regional competition.
