Trinity Valkyrie Invitational
September 20, 2012Thomas Nelson HS
On September 15, the Thomas Nelson Cross Country team competed and did a remarkable job in the Trinity Valkyrie Invitational. There were 130 National Elite teams who participated. Seven of the eight players from Thomas Nelson improved their personal records. The results for the boys were great. Nathan got 18:12, Jarret got 18:14, Tyler 18:53, Timothy got 21:42, and Austin got 22:03. Hope and Sadie SB'd with 25:17 and 25:42. According to the team's website, tnhstrackxc.weebly.com, Jarret "came off the course having fallen, been shoved repeatedly (once into a post), been spiked and basically pushed around for 5,000 meters," and was unable to improve his time. Also mentioned in their website, "We weren't there just to see it. We went to be in the fight." Congratulations to the team! Be sure to wish them luck at their next meet at the Franklin County Invitational on September 22. Go generals!
