State College Area High School Cross Country Course

We went from summerlike weather for the first to Youth Cross-Country races to a very autumnal morning for the last meet of the season. It  was cool and rainy, but we still had a good turnout of die-hards and even a few first-timers. In the first race, the experienced Natasha Fedkin toured the course at an even pace, finishing in agreat time, 9:23. First-timer Jared Hurd started hard on her heals, but quickly learned the value of pacing, finishing in 14:14. Tessa Kisenwether was hurting at the end of her race, but still made the finish in a respectable time. Young Danae Hurd ran enthusiastically for 10 minutes with her Dad.


In the 3K race, Chloe "The Pro" Schmidt led from start to finish, completing the course in 12:27.
The weather was pretty drab, so we let 13 year old Peter Lin run the 3K with the younger kids. Peter ran hard behind Chloe, finishing in 12:45. Nikita Fedkin was the second 11-12 year old. First in the 9-10 age group was Chase Davis in 14:20, followed by Seamus Wagner in 15:09.  We look forward to seeing all these kids again next year!
