Emily Oldt says, "Yup!" as she laughs.
|The Right Stuff? Some days they never cease to show me they do.|
East Stroudsburg North and East Stroudsburg South in a Mountain Valley match-up near Bushkill Falls today.
Freshman Jeni Beers came in second overall, just ten seconds behind Pocono Mountain East's best runner, Senior Abby Ross. Jeni had a time of 20:32 her career best time. Junior Emily Oldt came in 4th overall and second for Lehighton with a career best 21:59, followed by Freshman Cassie Rehnert with 23:03. Senior Alyssa Schleicher has been turning in good times with some strong running form, helping to anchor the crucial last 2 spots that allowed Lehighton to hold off ESS with a time of 26:36. Freshman and newcomer to the sport Erica Koutch continues to improve with a 26:58. Lehighton is looking forward to 3 more years from these talented freshman girls.
|Coach Marushak going over passing strategy. Cassie Rehnert,|
Josh Gornick and EMily Oldt say is it enough to take
6 spots in the last mile?
|The different ways pre-race jitters can look is evident here.|
|All those jitters are gone at the sound of "Go!"|
|Emily Oldt's sneaky, sly form hides her speed.|
|Daulton is not going to let them stay there.|
|Eyes up Chris Bosco...good form.|
|Jeni Beers shows how she uses her arms to pump it up over tough hills. |
The rest show their jealousy with their smiles.
Daulton Radler had a 19:03, Ryan Coulter 19:57, Chris Bosco 21:06 and Josh Gornick 25:11.
All these atheletes should return and be solid once again for Lehighton.
|Determination on Josh Gornick's face.|
|The methodical steps of a seasoned|
senior runner. Nice run Alyssa!
|Erica shows a bounce in her step.|
|Sophie Coombe was able to knock 30 seconds|
off her Middle School race time at this same
course from just 3 weeks ago.
|Ryan had no idea just how fast he could run today.<><> >>|
