The Race to Nationals
Several of our cross country runners participated in the North Carolina State Junior Olympics Cross Country Championship in Greensboro, NC on Sunday. In order to qualify for Nationals, the runner must come in the top 15 for their race, or their team must place 1st or 2nd. Weddington had several runners running for a few different associations from the area. Of those runners, Sarah Bechtel, Sydney Burke and Chase Barajas qualified to compete at Whispering Pines Country Club in Myrtle Beach in the Junior Olympic National Cross Country Championships. Over 3000 runners from all over the country will compete on December 13th in this competition. Competition takes place in five two-year age divisions, ranging between the ages of 7 and 18. Sarah and Sydney will compete with other 13 and 14 year old runners and run a 4K. Chase will compete with other 11 and 12 year old runners and run a 3K race. All three students said that they were very excited about qualifying and looking forward to the competition in December. Congratulations, and good luck to you all!Full Story
