“On your marks, get set, GO!” said the official as he shot the gun and started off the race for the day. The New Haven Shamrocks traveled to Linn on Saturday, September 14, 2019. They came home that day with some hardware from their athletes and Varsity boys team-- each race awarded plaques to the top three teams. The Varsity boys team got third out of fifteen teams, and the Varsity girls got fourth out of eleven teams. After the meet the athletes were asked some questions on their race.
The first question asked was how they felt they ran on Saturday.
Junior Hannah Borcherding said, “I feel I ran okay on Linn’s hard course.”
Junior Emma McIntyre replied, “I didn’t run my best race, but it’s the beginning of the season so there is still work to be done.”
Freshman Andrew Rethemeyer answered, “I felt I ran a pretty good race and I was happy with my overall time.”
They were then asked how they felt the team ran as a whole.
Junior Matthew Otten explained, “I felt the boys had a good race-- we all looked really strong out there.”
Junior Emma McIntyre answered, “I feel our girls team ran really well.”
The athletes were then asked if there was anything they feel they need to work on.
Hannah Borcherding expressed, “I would like to work on getting stronger and improving my times.”
Andrew Rethemeyer said, “I would like to work on getting a faster time.”
Emma McIntyre replied, “I would like to work on getting our girls close together and getting stronger as a team.”
Good luck, Shamrocks, on your upcoming meets! The next meet is this Saturday in Columbia at 9 A.M.
