Six of the seven UCHS boys cross country runners ran personal best times and all seven ran seasonal best in the meet where it counts the most, the state championships held Friday, October 30 at McAlpine Greenway in Charlotte.
UCHS finished in 19th place but had only one runner above sophomore level competing at the meet. The level of youth and commitment to improvement paint a very bright picture for the future of cross country at University Christian.
Times for UCHS were:
Yates Johnson 21:31, Jonah Long 22:10, Parker Heller-Lee 22:23, Carter Morgan 22:52, David Abel 23:26, Jack Ryan Richardson 23:28, and Phillip Wilson 23:43 for the 3.1 mile (5 kilometer) course.
