The girls varsity cross country team competed in the MHSAA Division 2 Regional on Saturday in Centreville. The team was led by Senior Captain Marnie Frost running a season best time of 20:32 and placing 14th overall qualifying her for the MHSAA Cross Country State Championship Race. She was followed by Katie Schooley running a season best time of 20:38, Holli Dannenberg, Cate Frost running a season best time of 21:33, Hayden Rooker, Summer Corke, and Ana Gonzalez. The girls ran with their hearts putting everything they had into the race. Marnie Frost and Cate Frost, our senior captains have run on our South Haven cross country teams since 6th grade. Cate ran her last cross country race as a Ram on Saturday and it has been an amazing journey. After a basketball injury resulting in ACL surgery this past spring she did everything she could in physical therapy and in training to have a strong final cross country season and she did just that. Marnie will have one more cross country race as a Ram at the State Championship meet on Saturday, November 3rd, she is ready. Varsity teammate Hayden Rooker said “We raced and finished as a team and that’s something we can all be proud of! Marnie, I’m so happy you’re running at state for all of us. You’re representing our team and I can’t be more excited and thankful that you qualified”. As a coach I am so proud of each of these girls and the love and support they give to one another. It’s not just about the run it’s about the journey and who you become. “Gratitude is the primary feeling I want my athletes to live by. Gratitude for the opportunity, the passion, and the ability to do what they do at high levels, Gratitude for the victories and for the losses. We are either winning, or we are learning. There is no such thing as failure.” ~Siri Lindley. Congratulations to the girls cross country team on your 2018 season! Go Rams!
