With a small roster of 10 runners, our Cross Country team enjoyed great camaraderie this year under the guidance of coaches Edith Fouser and Josh Webb and captains Eleyna Bayer, Jerry Lin, Katharine Judy and Ethan Wood. Keeping up with tradition on camping trip, our runners had a successful run to downtown Wolfeboro where they enjoyed ice cream on a hot day in the shade at Bailey's Bubble in Wolfeboro. To bookend the season, the team finished off their year on a chilly November afternoon where they enjoyed ice cream from Captain Dusty's. Inside of those bookends, Waring's team ran barefoot at Cranes beach, challenged themselves with hill workouts, called the quad their home, built team cohesiveness on their single van rides to away meets, challenged themselves to push their limits against the clock and one another on a regular basis and enjoyed the wooded challenge Waring's course offers during multiple meets this season. At the MBIL championships at Chapel Hill Chauncy Hall, our team placed two runners on the All Star Team (seniors Jerry Lin and Ethan Wood) while all runners on Waring's team had a personal best that day. The team shared a dinner together that evening and toasted their water bottles to a wonderful season, thankful they were able to compete again for themselves and the Waring school.
