The boys varsity cross-country team hosted the Portage and Crown Point cross-country teams for a meet on Sept. 17. Despite having a tough practice the night before, the boys pulled through and ran the race.

“We usually do better, but we had a hard practice yesterday, so our legs were sore,” Casey Garvey (10) said.

The top three Lake Central racers from this meet were Zachary Hupp (10), finishing second, Tyler Kramer-Stephens (10), finishing seventh and Casey Garvey (10), finishing 10th overall.

“We are doing a lot better than other teams thought we were going to do,” Garvey said.

Tuesday’s race was the boys’ seventh one of the season. The boys are striving to continue getting better as the season progresses.

“We had a bigger image in our minds than winning the race. We are looking forward to our post-season in October,” Colin Chenoweth (11) said.

On Saturday, the cross-country teams will travel to New Prairie for their next meet.
