Greenville girls edged out another win in a close meet. Greenville tied for first with Wayland Union, both with a score of 40 points, so the tiebreaker went to the 6th team runner, which was Rachel Bahlman for Greenville, beating out Wayland Union's 6th place runner Emiy Tuinstra.
The course that GR Union set up was definitely a challenge, consisting of some significant hills and ending with 3 climbs and 2 descents up and down a very steep hill known as "The Hawk's Nest." "Courses like these are why we do hill repeats," I told the everyone before the race.
Every single girl on this team dug deep, passing multiple opponents as they finished on those hills in order to secure the win. I was especially impressed with Emily Rice, as she notched a significant PR on a tough course, helping propel us forward to the win. This meet showed true grit and toughness from this team and really showed me their willingness to go out there and compete.
