Having the full compliment of runners all in the same race for the first time this season couldn't have come at a better time. We have overcome a lot of adversity this year, but when it counted the most, these boys made a huge commitment to bring a title back to Central Heights! I'm genuinely pleased with they way they came together this last week. From the 6th graders up to the seniors, this is something that I hope we can continue to build on. Zack Grabbe, Kyle Cardin and Bryce Sommer had highly important roles today and displayed exceptional leadership this season. Having Jarod Crawford running a huge PR as a freshman as well as Tyler Stevenson, Caleb Meyer and Alex Cannady all turning in some of their best performances of the season were incredible to watch. Six runners in the top 19 usually brings considerable rewards and, on this occasion, these kids have earned another week together on the course headed to State! Boys team: 1st Individual results: 4th - Tyler Stevenson - 17:41 6th - Alex Cannady - 18:27 7th - Kyle Cardin - 18:32 8th - Caleb Meyer - 18:34 14th - Jarod Crawford - 18:54 19th - Bryce Sommer - 19:20 50th - Zackery Grabbe - 20:24 Full results from Black Squirrel Timing can be found at the following link: http://blacksquirrelresults.com/2017/XC/CentralHeightsRegXC.pdf

Final from Central Heights CH 8 West Franklin 46
The competition in the Flint Hills League is very high quality. On the Middle School side, we had a lot of success this season and it came through once again with five of the seven middle schoolers placing in the top 10 of their respective races. Having five runners in the top 10 of the JV race as well also helps give us a good amount of confidence for the future. While the Varsity boys finished 3rd in the league for the second year in a row, we were without our top runner this season and are still trying to find the right combination as we head into the biggest meet of the season. We will be hosting a 3A Regional meet next Saturday which will once again include the top three teams from our League. The competition, however, will be even higher with the addition of some other solid programs so we must bring our best in order to keep the season going.

Central Heights cross country at Pleasanton: First, I would like to give recognition to Lily Meyer and Taryn Compton for finishing 1st and 2nd in the 8th grade 2 Mile for the 3rd week in a row. They are both on a really good roll right now heading into League this coming Thursday as well as Emma Cubit who finished 3rd in the 7th grade 2 Mile as a 6th grader. They show a lot of heart and their hard work keeps paying off. On the high school boys side, the both the JV and varsity groups are doing a nice job improving each week as well. I am pleased that we were only a few points behind one of the best teams in 4A and the #1 ranked team in 2A. The competition won't get any easier next week at the Flint Hills League meet, but it will be a good test to see what we still need to work on. 8th Grade Girls 1st - Lily Meyer - 13:06 (medalist) 2nd - Taryn Compton - 13:49 (medalist) 7th - Lily Roll - 19:57 7th Grade Girls 3rd - Emma Cubit - 14:04 (medalist) 15th - Chloe LaDuke - 17:04 7th Grade Boys 7th - Max Cannady - 14:26 10th - Jessy Stalford - 14:40 JV Boys 1st - Alex Cannady - 18:36 (medalist) 4th - Orvel Broce - 20:41 (medalist) 7th - Luke Cotter - 20:50 11th - Matthew Ashwill - 21:14 14th - Mason McCurry - 21:20 34th - Landen Compton 24:19 40th - Ryder Roll - 26:41 Varsity Boys 5th - Tyler Stevenson - 17:38 (medalist) 8th - Kyle Cardin - 18:03 (medalist) 17th - Bryce Sommer - 19:09 18th - Caleb Meyer - 19:10 19th - Jarod Crawford - 19:16 39th - Zack Grabbe - 20:07 41st - David Craft - 20:15-- Troy Prosser Central Heights Head Cross Country
