Eight boys and two girls are out for Palmyra High School cross country this fall.
Coach Nicole Harper has a mixture of returning experience and young runners going into the season, with seniors, Jacob Barnes and Carter Harper, leading the squad.
“Jacob and Carter ended last season strong and have put the time in this summer,” Harper said, noting that sophomores Wesley Summers and Ashton Lovegreen, are also returning stronger.
“They put the time in this summer to make themselves better, and I look forward to seeing their improvement.”
Harper also has a newcomer to cross country in Landon Jurado, a sophomore who ran track last spring.
“I am excited to see what he can do on the course this year,” she said.
Also joining the high school team are freshmen, Aiden Lynn, Coby McCaskey and Walter Poor who competed in cross country at the middle school.
“I look forward to seeing how they adjust to high school competition,” Harper said.
Lillian Cramlett, a sophomore, is the only returning girl runner.
“And she has shown improvement in practice already,” Harper said. “I am excited to see how she improves this season.
Brooklyn Platt, a freshman, is new to the program and is running strong.
“I look forward to seeing how she adjusts to high school competition as well,” Harper said.
Harper indicated her runners have benefited from participating in a summer strength and conditioning program.
“Over all, I have been pleased with the effort at practice and the time some of the kids put in the weight room this summer,” she said. “We had an excellent strength and conditioning program offered to our kids this summer that has already made a difference in their performances”
