On Saturday, October 10, the Smithville JV Cross Country squad travelled to Jesse James Park to compete in the Kearney Invitational. The team was ready to race and try to hit some new PRs. Unfortunately, the wave they were placed in had very few runners. As a result, the external motivation of racing other schools was minimized. Despite the racing conditions, the team pushed one another and gave it their all. The boys JV squad finished their wave with a perfect score place first through fifth. On the girls side, the entire squad finished one right after the other.
Both Varsity & JV will compete on Thursday, October 15th at Platte Ridge Park in the KC Suburban Blue Conference meet.
