In the first two weeks of the 2021 Cross Country season the Clayton-Bradley Academy Middle and High School Cross Country teams have set 7 new school records for best times on courses and distances. They are definitely off to a hot start! Each runner has finished with a better time in each race so far, with some of them shaving even as much as a minute off of their previous personal records.
On the High School side of things, Sophomore Dustin Henderlight is leading the way, setting new boys school records on each of the first three meets this season. He ran an 11:35 time at Cherokee Farms 2 mile race, 18:38 5K at Victor Ashe and 18:14 at the Cherokee race in Sequoyah Hills this past Saturday, which is also a school record for that distance overall. Fellow Sophomore Ava Graves has set the new girls school record at Cherokee Farms 2 mile race with a time of 17:34.
For Middle School, 6th grader Claire Bollschweiler set the new girls 2 mile records with her times of 17:19 at Victor Ashe on September 4th and 15:48 in the race at Cove Lake Thursday.
Everyone is off to a great start on the course this year for the Blazers! Middle School will be at Walters State Community College in Sevierville on Tuesday evening and High School will be at Johnson University on Saturday morning for their nex races. Come out and cheer them on!
