Congratulations to Hunter Martell and Caleb Lusk for being chosen as PACA Athletes of the Week!
Hunter ran a great race at the Huron cross country meet placing 2nd in the varsity division. There was a total of 36 runners. Hunter beat four girls in this race that placed in the top 25 at the state cross country meet last Fall. Hunter’s time was 20:30 in the 5000 meters. You have to take into account that this is Hunter’s first year in cross country ever and she is beating some very good runners.
Caleb ran his last regular season cross country meet this past week as a senior. He placed 3rd at the Huron Meet which had 39 runners and ran a time of 17:52 over the 5000 meters. This was their 8th meet this season and Caleb has been their number one runner at each one of those cross country meets. Coming into the season Caleb was fighting injuries, but has worked very hard to get to where he is at this point of the season.
