2022 Meets

Sept 17: Paul Henke XC Invite - Sioux Passage Park, Old Jamestown, MO
The Blue Knights High School Team returned on 9/17 to what is notoriously known as the hardest, hilliest course in the state of Missouri. With the warm weather adding to the difficult course, each of the 23 Blue Knight’s runners crossing the finish line was a celebration. As one dad said in witnessing this meet, “Never underestimate the power of encouragement.” Coaches, parents, and siblings were spread throughout the course cheering runners on when they were fighting the mental game to keep pushing. The cheers were noticeably powerful. Each of the 5K races included 110-230 athletes. Although the Blue Knights did not earn any medals at this meet, 10 individuals set PRs compared to running the same course last year. The coaches are proud of their hard work!
Sept 10: Forest Park XC Festival, Forest Park, St. Louis, MO

Leading the team was Lynn Criswell, 4th overall at 13:02.0. Following Lynn were Kiera Stiles, Kaylie Szymanski, Heidi Anderson, and Lindsey Skogen as scoring athletes. For a number of middle schoolers, this was their first meet ever. There is much energy and enthusiasm fueling this hard-working team!
