The Cowan boys cross country team competed in the MEC Cross Country Meet on Saturday, October 3, at Blue River Valley. The boys took advantage of the beautiful running weather as the top 5 guys all ran season best times or P.R.s. Their efforts added up to a 6th place finish for the team.
Junior Nathaniel Kirby was Cowan’s top runner with his 17th place finish in a time of 18:54, his best effort of the season. Sophomore Logan Walker recorded his new P.R. of 19:16 to finish 27th, and Junior Perrin Belcher ran his season best time of 19:22 to finish in 29th.
The next two runners in for the Blackhawks both set new P.R.s with senior Logan Byrd lowering his to 20:12 and Gavin Ashby improving to 20:41.
The Blackhawks are scheduled to compete in the Delta Sectional Meet next Saturday, October 10.
