The Broncs Soar at The Mountain West Classic!

The Mountain West Classic...over 2000 high school cross country runners. What a weekend for the Broncs! The varsity boys led by Anthony's 4th place and Easton's 8th place, finished higher than any previous Hamilton and probably higher than any Class A team in recent memory. The boys secured 4th place out of 59 complete teams!! We were beat by Kalispell Glacier, Bozeman and University High out of Spokane, WA. Our boys beat 55 other 4A, 3A, AA, A, B and C schools. A State "A" championship is our ultimate goal but honestly, for those who understand our sport and this event...taking 4th at the Mountain West Classic was a bigger accomplishment. I am so very proud of our team.
Our girls placed 24th, but were the #3 Class A team. I like our chances to potentially place at state in 4 weeks. We had several personal records and are only getting better each week. Kaitlin is just 8 seconds away from breaking the school record and was the #5 Class A girl to cross the finish line. Way to go ladies!!
It's all about mental resiliency and staying heathy from here on out. We can do it. We will do it!
Go Broncs.
