The Cross Country Team

Cross country is a very interactive sport. I interviewed a few students who are in XC and Mrs. Bishop. This is Mrs. Bishop’s 4th year coaching, and for the past 3 years, Mrs. Hoffman has been her assistant coach. Now it’s Ms. Sancken. The cross country team went to state for the girls last year, and Davin Dingledine went to state as an individual. Mrs. Bishop was not a runner when she was younger. She didn’t start running until she was in college. There are 38 students in cross country this year, and they practice normally 4 to 5 days a week, but they have a meet almost every single week!

I interviewed Eva Knapp, and this is what she said:

Q: What made you want to join cross country?

A: “My family wanted me to, and I like running.”

Q: What do you like most about cross country?

A: “The team.”

Q: What do you tell yourself at the end of the race?

A: “Did you try your hardest?”

Q: What’s your PR for 2 miles?

A: “15:13.”

Next, I interviewed Kaiya Schumacher, and this is what she said:

Q: What made you want to join cross country?

A: “My friends are doing it, and I like running.”

Q: What do you tell yourself at the end of the race?

A: “You did it.”

Q: What’s your PR for 1 mile?

A: “7:38.”

Next, I interviewed Hudson Leman, and these are his answers:

Q: What made you want to join cross country?

A: “I got forced because my brother did it. I also like running.”

Q: What do you tell yourself at the end of the race?

A: “Do better next time.”

Q: What’s your PR for 2 miles?

A: “18:26.”

Q: What do you love about cross country so far?

A: “You get to meet lots of kids, and they are all very positive. Kids behind you are like ‘Keep on going’ and stuff like that.”
