Cross Country at LCS is a great option for athletes in grades 4-8 who wish to participate in interscholastic running. LCS is a member of the Busline League, a consortium of elementary and middle schools ranging geographically from Woolwich to Searsport including the island communities of Islesboro and Vinalhaven.
On a beautiful late summer afternoon our cross country team had their first competition of the season. The meet was held at Camden Hills Regional High School and hosted by Camden Rockport Middle School. The schools participating along with LCS were Appleton, St. George, Wiscasset, Oceanside, Troy Howard Middle School, and of course, the host school Camden Rockport.
Both the boys and girls teams had impressive starts to the season as each finished in second place for their respective meets.
The boys, who had the first race, were led by Brandon Nelson who came in 5th place with a time of 14:36. He was followed closely by Thomas Leadbetter (14:42) in 6th, Kaden Wood (14:58) in 9th, Preston Rossiter (15:34) 11th, and Sage Burgess (16:08) in 18th place.
In the second race Jaden Johnson, defending Busline League Champion, kept her winning streak going completing her first place finish in a time of 14:59. Other runners rounding out our top six were Liana Talty in 9th place (17:01), Chloe Root 10th (17:06), Elise Talty 11th (17:06), Natalie Bolduc 12th (17:14), and Grace Moody 13th (17:22).
Complete results for both the boys and girls race are posted to the right.
The team runs again next Thursday at home beginning at 4:00 PM with the girls running first.
