On Thursday, October 1, PMS hosted its annual meet at Temescal Regional Park. It was the largest meet in league history, with almost 300 runners participating! Despite having to put on the race in a construction zone, the parents and kids from all the schools cooperated to make it a very successful event. Once again, we fielded a complete 6th grade girls team, with Maddie Copeland leading the way in 3rd place, Madison Tenney in 11th, Alexandra Shoptaugh in 14th, Nicole Bilorusky in 21st and Megan Wilensky in 23rd. For the 6th grade boys, our top finisher was Kyle Bilorusky in 15th place. The 7th & 8th grade girls race was closely contested and several PMS runners finished high in the standings, with Anna Harleen leading the way in 3rd place, followed by Sofia Lautt 8th place, and Angel Rael 12th place in 7:49.
The 2nd to last race was the 7th grade boys and once again Piedmont had several kids in the top 12: Andrew Strauch 5th place, Thomas Horn 6th place, Miles Von Herman 11th place, and Chase Betta 12th place. The final race was the 8th grade boys and it was also a very competitive race with three PMS runners in the top 10: Kevin Wu in 5th place, Matthew Gologorsky in 7th place, and Andrew Jara in 10th place.
