The Lady Wolverines competed in their first cross country meet of the season last Thursday at West Texas A&M University in Canyon, TX.  The varsity team consisted of nine girls, all of which pushed themselves to finish and hopefully do better than they believed that they could.

“Going into this meet, my goal was to have a better time than what I got last year at this course,” junior Taytum Goodman said. “After I finished, I knew that I had fastened my time, and I hope that I can do that throughout the season.”

Goodman placed 1st out of more than 70 girls. In addition to Goodman, several varsity team runners ran the course with a faster time than the previous year. 

“We had four runners who ran the same course last year, and three of them improved their time,” Coach Jeri Been Goodman said. 

Junior Emma Samaron placed 29th and ran a 15:11. Samaron enjoys running the WT course and was happy to be able to compete once again for another year. 

“I like running the course because there’s not any hills or bumps; it’s mostly flat, even ground,” said Samaron. 

The Lady Wolverines plan to practice and prepare themselves for their next meet on September 10th at Lubbock Christian University.  

“As of bettering my runners for next week, we’re running hard, working hard, working on our sprints more, and getting more miles in so hopefully we’ll be ready for Lubbock Christian,” Coach Been said.
