Early in the morning on September 9th, the FWC upper school cross country team competed in the North Crowley Invitational meet hosted at The Buff. This course is notoriously difficult due to its steep hills and jagged terrain. Local cross country powerhouses, including Birdville, Burleson, and Burleson Centennial were in attendance.
Our varsity boys raced well, placing 5th out of 10 teams in the 5A UIL division. Notably, Hunter Hinrichsen (sophomore) placed 6th overall out of a field of 80 runners. Luke Reed, Brady Aschenbeck, and Cortland Mallet all recorded personal 5k records.
Grace Dale (sophomore) represented our varsity girls’ team, recording a personal record in the 5K distance as well.
Varsity captains Hunter Hinrichsen and Luke Reed now look to lead our team to another great performance this upcoming Thursday at the Castleberry Clash Invitational meet at the Camp Carter YMCA complex in Fort Worth.
