On Tuesday, Sept. 16, at 3:15 p.m., about 80 athletes representing their respective schools took off from the starting line with a pistol shot from Athletic Director Nate Agostini, and away the various runners went! The herd of runners took off and soon disappeared from view. Over the course which spanned the perimeter of Pecos Park, the runners got quite separated from each other. However, as they reached the last leg of their 3.1 mile journey, the man leading the pack, was Horizon Honors’ very own junior Trevor Tam. Tam, who is now participating in his third year of Varsity Cross Country, finished the race with a remarkable lead ahead of the nearest competitor.

Even though there were a considerable number of Horizon Honors’ Eagles’ runners towards the front of the pack, they were still unable to place first as a team for the meet. However, they did come away with a second place rank with Northwest Christian in front, a solid stepping stone from which improvements can be made, guaranteeing success for the Eagles in the future. The team’s next meet is Valley Christian Cross Country Invitational on Tuesday, Sept. 22, at 5 p.m.
