Area cross country runners ready for 2013 season to get underway

Area high school cross country teams have started their season. Some teams are rebuilding, some are hopeful for a season filled with success and others are setting goals.


The Barr-Reeve Vikings boy’s cross country coach JayR Perkins said he has nine runners on the boy’s side this year. Girl’s coach Susie Graber has two runners.

“We have a mix of upper classmen and one freshman,” said Perkins. Last year Perkins said his team advanced to semi-state and he has high hopes that this years’ team can repeat. If they do, this will be the eighth year in a row the for Barr-Reeve to compete at semi-state. “Last year’s season was a little disappointing because we had one of the best teams Barr-Reeve has ever had,” said Perkins. “We had two all-state runners and one of the top five freshman in the state, but Jarit (Perkins, the coach’s son) got injured and couldn’t run. It was rewarding though because Conner (Sorrells) won state. Perkins said this year the goal is to keep his runners healthy and motivated.

“We want to win conference, place well at the sectional, and move onto regionals.” Currently Perkins, a sophomore, is ranked in the top five in the state of all runners in his grade. “He has tremendous talent,” said coach. “Our other runners are showing improvement too. They train hard and are showing great progression from last year.”


Washington coach Dave Harman is looking forward to building off the success his boy’s cross country team found last year. “The boy’s won the conference for the in 20 years last season,” said Harmon. “We are hoping to win the conference title again this year.”

The Hatchets lost just one runner to graduation and have roster boosting 14 boys and eight girls this year.
