Facing the Tigers, Panthers, and more!

On another warm and sunny day, the Pella runners, this time both Middle School and High School, traveled to Grinnell to take on some great competition. We saw amazing effort on all sides and awesome teamwork. Asnalways, one of our biggest blessings was that we were surrounded by scores of enthusiastic and encouraging fans. 🙂

Despite the heat and the mental drainage that comes from a flat and overlapping course (we had to run large portions of the same course twice!), the outcome of our effort was nothing to be ashamed of.

For the Varsity boys, the 5 scoring athletes each earned medals (taking 1/3 of those received for that race) and all 7 boys were less than a minute and a half apart from each other
