Preview: Cross Country prepares for first league meet

Cross Country will be having its first league meet at Bonelli Park on Wednesday, Sept. 13.

In preparation, the team has been practicing by mixing up track-based workouts and speed runs to improve their speed despite the triple-digit weather.

“We’ve been training hard every day and have been running through the heat. Even though the workouts are toned down, we still run hard to stay in shape,” junior Nikhil Bhakta said. “My mentality is strong so that I’m ready to compete; I built it up when everyone said I could never be good at running, and that fueled me to prove them wrong.”
