HVMS XC - Meet #1

Fall brings many great things. The crisp cool temperatures mean you can break out your favorite sweater again, the damp scent of leaves and earth tell you that Halloween and Thanksgiving are just around the corner, football (need I say more?), and now it also signals the arrival of a new passion for at least one member of my family: Cross Country!

My daughter started running cross country last fall and had a great time. She is having an even better experience this year and I've enjoyed documenting the events through pictures as can be seen in the photos and the linked gallery, below.

And the girls are off and running!

This young lady from Rowe dominated at the first meet of the season

1.8 miles later, there was no one even close as she crossed the finish line

Every finisher got a high five

One of our Happy Valley boys took the lead mid-way through his race

Headed for a close finish, Coach Oliver leads the pack on his pace-bicycle

And it's Happy Valley by a narrow margin!
