The first cross country meet of the year is about setting new expectations and goals. How fast you can run two miles in August is always a big test.

The 2017 cross country season started with a four-school meet at SIUE, and Liberty students proved what they’re capable of – withstanding the pain it takes to run that long distance. Most discovered that they can do a lot better next time.

It seems Wyatt Erber (8th) wasn’t happy with his time, but he knew he could do better at his next meet. “My goal was to get 12 minutes.”

Luke Brockmeier (6) was new to cross country this year, so he didn’t know what to expect. Overall he was very excited about the sport and couldn’t wait to get started.

Coach Chapman is the head cross country coach along with Ms. Bevis. Coach Chapman was pleased with how the runners ran on Saturday especially the 6th graders. The runners had to battle through the heat, the pain, and being out of shape especially since it was the first race of the season and most runners, it was their first meet ever.
