Jack Mitchell advanced to the semi-state.
Jack Mitchell ran an amazing and gritty race from start to finish, as he has done all year. Jack set his goal at the beginning of the season to advance to semi-state & that’s exactly what he did on Saturday. His consistent desire to get better every day has now paid off in a major way.
Jackson Fenton, Ryder Marshall & Chris Lister all fell short of their goal of advancing, but this doesn’t take anything away from the great seasons they all has.
Fenton & Marshall have improved drastically since the beginning of the season.
Fenton, being a senior this was a little bit tougher to take in. However, he is an extraordinary person & athlete who can achieve anything he sets his mind to. Coach cannot wait to continue training Jackson for track season to see how much more he can improve.
Marshall ran a great race Saturday & has an extremely bright future in this sport. Look for him to be this teams number one runner in the coming years (as he’s a sophomore) & shatter times that he never thought would be possible. Running comes so naturally to Ryder & he is going to be a star.
Coach Devine is so proud of all of these guys & looks forward to building this team up even more going forward.
Good Luck to Jack Mitchell this weekend as he competes in the semi-state!!
