On a day made for a runner, the Fighting Irish stepped up big time among some of the best competition not only in the state but also in the country. When the day was over, 2 guys ran times that are ranked as the best in the country! Our Irish did not disappoint either as 90% of the Irish posted their fastest times of the year.
The two photos above depict our Freshmen/Sophomores who scored a 7th place and 4th place respectfully. Outstanding job for our younger runners. The Race of Champions had the guys finish in 8th place and the ladies finish in 10th place out of 37 teams entered. There was only three total teams including the Irish that were designated as division II teams.
Now the journey goes to one last regular season race. Envision the Highest Peak!
