Cross country improve times at Bassett meet

SoVaNow.com / September 13, 2018
Halifax County High School cross country continues to make progress, especially in terms of faster personal efforts for team members.

Halifax competed in a multi-team meet at Bassett Tuesday.

“When comparing this meet to last weeks, Coach (Melanie) Saunders and I were extremely pleased.

“Over 75 percent of the team had faster times than last weeks, with several shaving a minute or more off. We sat down with the team after last week and talking about times moving forward from here on out, so for the team to go out there and achieve this was a big step in the right direction,” said coach David Riddle.

“We are still a work in progress. But this group has a tremendous amount of potential. If they keep buying into our system and putting in the work at practice things will continue to get better,” said Riddle.

Lydia Wenzel had the top Comet time - 27.00.40 - in the girls’ 5000 meters. She finished 18th in that field.

Holden Francis was 31st fastest in the boys’ 5000 - producing a 27.08.95.
