(Chelsea Update would like to thank Loren Thorburn for the information in this story.)
The Beach Middle School boys team placed 9th out of 22 teams (a total of 190 runners). The boys had four out of six boys run PRs and three boys received medals. Congrats to Shaun Happy, Jimmy Alford, Owen Smith, Jack Smith, Lucas Hopkins, and Robert Stump.
The boys reserve team placed 10th out of 14 teams (a total of 236 runners). The boys reserve team had six out of seven boys run a PR and three boys earned a medal. Congrats to Parker Olk, Darren Bollinger, John Putnam, Forrest Gorby, Nick Detterman, Zach Delong, and Keigan Cavett.
The girls did not have enough runners to field teams for their races at Hudson-Mills. However, all seven girls who ran at the Mega Jam earned a season PR or life-time PR. In addition, each girl earned a medal. There were about 150 runners in each of their races. Congrats Riley Thorburn, Andrea Kolowaski, Isobel Alford, Cedar Hughes, Mya King, Shawna Chester, and Karly Nickel.
A special recognition to Caden Faupel, Amanda Dosey, Ed Beauchamp, and Sarah Kennings who could not make it to the Mega Jam, but made significant improvement throughout the season.
