Lear Park & Gilmer Meet Recaps

Lear Park Recap-

It was another Hot and Humid race for the SHCC teams as they competed this past Friday at Lear Park, against hundreds of runners from all across East Texas. Bribed with the traditional Pizza King lunch, 28 runners and bikers would set up camp and then prepare to get the job done. However, in running one must learn that every race isn’t going to be your best, sometimes bad races happen. And as any seasoned runner will tell you, it isn’t always the Personal Best runs that define you, but the bad. Because it is in those races and how you deal with them, that prepare and define the runner you truly are. And for handful, that was the lesson taught at Lear. And for others….they rose to the occasion and filled in the gaps, setting Personal Best and once again reminding the SH team, that we are in this together. And together they were, from the Open Division boys to the JV girls race, all along side the course you could see Spring Hill runners and bikers alike cheering on their teammates to FIGHT and RUN with all they have. Ending the day with two top ten finishers (Kalen Barlow, in the Open Division with 7th place and a personal best of 17:06 for the 5k course) and (Annabeth Hood, in the JV Open girls division with 8th place), and many lessons learned.

Gilmer JH Meet Recap-

Unable to sleep in, after the exciting victory from Varsity Football defeating White Oak, the JH CC runners were up bright and early Saturday morning to compete in the Gilmer JH CC meet, hosted at Gilmer Elementary. Finally able to run in the cool morning, the JH girls and Boys were joined with 5 Varsity CC members to compete with 7th and 8th grade runners from all across East Texas. Yet, rocky footing and higher than normal temperatures would force the runners to adapt and compete. For the JH girls with most being gone to Volleyball, only two runners would take the line. And as 8th grader Riley Johnson would race to earn the top 10 medal, it was evident who SHCC was, and what they came to accomplish. Then for boys, after coming off with a second place finish from their last meet, the bar was set. Yet, with over 22 teams in the race, from 1A-6A, as well as Private and homeschool runners, the competition was stacked. But that did not stop the young runners from attacking each stride and racing hard. Allowing many to finish with personal records and some to find out that they could do it, and no matter what, even at the end with nothing left and teammates on both sides, they would discover there is always more than you think and your never alone. Runners would run the 2 mile course, which was quite torn up from Hogs and represent SH and prove that hardwork, teamwork, and heart go along way in achieving things. Results for Team awards have yet to be posted.

Backwoods Gallup (9/2) meet recap

Striding to Greatness
SH CC teams earn three meet titles and one runner-up at the ET Charter CC meet

It isn’t the size of the man, but the size of his heart that brings out greatness. And by the looks of the Spring Hill Cross Country team you might believe they look young and weak, yet this past Saturday at Letourneau University if you were to watch them race, you’d quickly see looks can be deceiving. Within the group wearing proudly the SH jersey were three team champions one team runner up, 13 top 10 finishers, and one race individual race champ.
Starting off the day were the Varsity boys, where Sophomore Kalen Barlow would blaze the trail pulling along his fellow teammates as they were able to edge out District rival Kilgore for the meet victory. Varsity runners competed on a level they have been aiming for since May, this victory not only set the stage for all future races, but provided them the confidence in knowing hard work pays off, if you push yourself to push your team.
Following the Varsity boys were the Varsity girls, who despite not fielding a team for this meet were able to grab 3rd and 4th places, thanks to the dynamic duo of freshman Samantha Schott and Sophomore Marissa Seyer. The pair were able to run the entire race side by side, pushing one another to push harder, and in end proved once again, together we achieve more.
Then going off the hype from hearing of the varsity boys team victory, the JV boys then knew what they had to do….win. And from the gun they got out, and pushed the pace, many running the course with personal records, but not to be overshadowed by teamwork put into the race. Packing in groups they kept a strong focus, having four in the top 15, they as well were able to edge out a team victory, by just three points over Lindale.
Finally, as the heat began to settle in and morning drew to afternoon, the JV girls took to the stage. And to say pressure wasn’t there would be an understatement, as the previous three races the expectations had been risen. No longer were they just to run good times, but run them together. And that is exactly what happened. With SH taking three in the top ten, including freshmen Annabeth Hood with her third place finish, the girls rallied together from there, seeing the goal now a reality. As they would go on to finish 1st place as a team, rounding out the day to three team titles for the day.
Yet, there still had two races to run, the JH boys and JH girls. And despite all the heat and sun pounding down on them, the high from the four races before had them ready to open their season. And so it began with the boys as 12 SH runners lined up to the start, recalling the wisdom given by HS runners, it was now their turn. But after the gun, they fell short of being in the top 10, but they didn’t back down, instead they kept pushing harder and harder as they neared the finish. Finishing with two in the top 10 and all hitting personal best, so as a reminder isn’t always how you begin, but how you don’t give up and fight to the finish. The boys would go on to fall just short of 1st place to Jacksonville, but the fire was lit….AND BELIEVE IT THEY ARE HUNGRY FOR MORE!
And then to end the day, were the JH girls. Where eighth grader Riley Johnson was able to end the day with her seventh place finish and Erin Hunnicutt was able to get a taste of what CC is all about. Both girls were also joined by Sixth grader Blair Bodenhimer, who despite being unable to score or medal, yet placed 21st for her CC debut.
All in all, if you didn’t know Spring Hill when you arrived, by the time you left you knew. It was evident that Spring Hill has not only become a strong CC program, but a strong family. Who works hard, pushes one another, and won’t be stopped. Greatness doesn’t happen overnight, nor does it come easy. And we know it. It doesn’t matter about your age or ability, its about who is willing to go beyond the distance, beyond what is asked, and rise to the challenges laid out before you. This SPRING HILL CC team might be young, might be small, but if you were to look into their hearts you’d see our secret weapon and when they all come together, GREATNESS happens.
The team will take a week off from racing to focus on training, and be back September 15th (for HS) and September 16th (for JH).
