Big week for our EF athletes… to recap our races from this weekend-
Our cross-country athletes all finished strong in their races. At their middle school race, Kylie Bosner took the overall win and Lucy Poh took 10th! Laine Mumford, Chase Brooksbank, Connor Doyle, and Colby Burcham all ran their running season’s best at Octoberfest. Jackson Wright and Hannah Lupica both had strong results at the Steward Relay and Pocahontas, respectively. Cooper Albright took 7th with another strong finish at the Lord Botetourt meet. Awesome job XC athletes!
At the Waterman’s Half Triathlon, EF Coach Kate Fisher finished 3rd in the masters females and 9th overall. Alex Tan placed 9th overall and 1st in their age group at the Waterman’s Sprint. Also at the Waterman Sprint, Lori Green finished first in her age group. She has been working hard to improve her run and stay mentally focused while racing which is really paying off!
Florence Lamirand took 2nd overall at Cyclocross after facing some difficulties along the course. She fought hard and finished strong. Way to go Florence!
We had a few EF athletes do some big bike rides/races over the weekend with awesome results. Jason and Katie Elliott completed the Tour of the Moon metric century in Colorado with both having super strong days on the bike. Also, Lucille O’Neil completed the Jeremiah Bishop Gran Fondo, overcoming sickness to still have a strong day.
