I ROCK WINNERS # 3
Congrats to all of our runners at the Western AA Quad on Saturday at Rebecca Farms. Each squad placed 2nd, and we had 7 PR's and 6 SB's. The boys team in particular is really bringing it on, closing their gaps and digging into the competition. It was a great day for all.
Shout out to this races I-Rock winners. Gabe Felton starts the line up as he came off of a 3 week injury, which was a hurdle for him. He was diligent in his recovery and practiced patience and raced a 17:30 seasons best! Reilly Johnson is our next recipient, as he finish as our #1 Varsity boy for the 4th week in a row. He is leaning into the Varsity competition and scraping time off weekly. Lilli Rumsey Eash continued her winning streak for the 3rd meet in a row, and continues to lead the Bravettes. She is doing a great job embracing the intense Varsity competition this season. And Ivy Gannon rounds out the group as she raced a PR for her season, on our gritty home course. Ivy took a risk in coming out for cross country and we love her work ethic and dedication to our team. She always has a smile.

Kudos to our second round of I-Rock Winners. All Flathead Runners had a great day at the Whitefish Stumptown Triangular, with squad wins by Varsity Girls, JV Girls and JV Boys. 10 Individual runners had PR's and 11 individual runners had SB's! Beautiful day and beautiful course and great to be together as a team.
Sophie Brown had an incredible kick to pass a handful of girls and finish up in a PR time. She adds so much grace and kindness to our team! Nora Iams secured a SB and had a solid gritty performance. She is climbing back into the ladder of competition this year, and solidly gives everything in each practice and race. Connor Wride secured a PR, winning the JV race with a varsity time. We're so happy to see his improvement after his 4 year commitment to our team and his leadership at all times. AND...Peter Wilson rounds out our I-Rock winners with a 9th place finish, putting him 2nd on Varsity this week and very close to a PR. Pete brings fun and grit to the team, and had a tremendous race with a negative split and kick to the finish.
I ROCK WINNERS # 1
Introducing the Western AA Flathead Invite I-Rock runners! Junior Kesler Hughes opened his season well with a great performance in the Boys JV race. He exhibited mental toughness on our challenging course and he closed in well on competition. Kelsie Ring had a tremendous first 5k XC race. She pushed herself beyond her physical limits, and we are so glad she took a risk on us her senior year. Senior Lark Olson competed unlike we've seen in her previous seasons. She has taken her competitive mindset to a new level and we love her determination and drive to beat her PR. Sophomore Peyton Lytton has also raised his personal bar in cross country. He is racing with a new intensity, and pushing himself to overcome the pain in each race. We are so proud of you all...thanks for representing us in Flathead Pride!
