The Fayette Invitational was held on September 14, 2013. The venue for this meet was Harrison Lake State Park, a scenic campground with a beautiful lake. Brandon Wisnofske, our lone middle school boy, was the first of our team to toe the line. The weather was cool and crisp, perfect for cross country running. Brandon completed his race in 14:33, a new personal best for him and giving him the 34th spot out of 67 runners. Next up were the Varsity Ladies. Junior, Savannah Holley, improved on her time for the season running 22 minutes flat and placing 17th. Meanwhile, Laura McKay pushed herself to a new personal record of 24:43, enough for 48th place. There were 101 ladies particpating in that race. The Varsity Boys, missing their Senior runner due to Senior Trip, were the last group to compete. Nathan Dick was the first Warrior to cross the line in a fast time of 18:39 awarding him a medal and 14th place. Isaac Holley, dropping time for the season, ran 21:05, a new PR, and he came in 43rd. Alex Vick, Chris Dick and Braden Plenzler came in one right after another. Each gentleman got a new personal record, 23:45, 23:46 and 23:58. It is great to see improvement each meet, showing their hard work at practice is paying off.
