Cross Country competed against 7 different schools in the EKL championship, with girls varsity earning first and boys varsity receiving second.

Freshman and second place runner Katie Schwartzkopf felt happy with the team’s performance and accomplishments.

“We always do really amazing and I am just so proud of all the other girls,” Schwartzkopf said. “I am proud of them after every single race because they do so good and as a team we just dominated.”

The rigorous preparation the team underwent helped them succeed, according to junior Nathan Greenfield.

“We have been training hard all summer and all season to get to this point as a team,” Greenfield said. “In the week building up, we did some mental preparations and we cut back on the milage [at practice] yesterday so we could stay fresh.”

Considering the conditions, Greenfield thought the boys ran a very competitive race.

“[The course] runs pretty quick but there has been a lot of rain over these past few days, so it was super muddy which makes stuff challenging,” Greenfield said. “It was sloppy and muddy and was just super wet, especially with varsity boys being the last race of the day.”

According to Schwartzkopf, Mill Valley proved to other schools that they are a forced to be reckoned with.

“This meet we set a precedent by saying we are Mill Valley and we can do this,” Schwartzkopf said. “We are going to show up to state with everyone looking at us and knowing we are strong competition.”

The Jaguars’ next race is regionals on Saturday, Oct. 20 at Olathe North.
