Tim Metkin and fellow runners still continue to do the hard prepping for upcoming races even as the regular season comes to a close. The MIC Championship is on Sept. 24.

On Friday, Sept. 24, the men’s cross country team will participate in the MIC Championship race. According to Head Coach Colin Altevogt, the team has been doing very well already this season and regardless of where they stand after the MIC Championship, the team has greatly improved.

“It is the last regular season meet so we are especially looking forward to the JV race at the MIC. Our guys have trained really hard this season, and that should be a great barometer for how much they have improved from last year,” Altevogt said.

Tim Metken, JV member and sophomore, also believes that the team will do well.

“I certainly think our team is set up for success in the MIC. Going into a meet with 8 teams (the MIC) should not be a problem for our team especially after seeing our hard work on the (previous) course,” Metken said.

Success comes with hard work and constant change and improvements, as players and coaches make revisions to get better and build a team.

“We’re still focused on making the most of each day with each of our guys. For those that will be running in the tournament, we’ve made some minor alterations to our training from past years that we hope will make us stronger later in the season…It’s a special atmosphere for our varsity guys to run with so many teammates at the meet supporting them. No other team in the state really has that,” Altevogt said.
