Members of the cross country team competed in the Nike Cross Regionals Heartland race Sunday, Nov. 12

Junior Dalamar Read placed 15th out of around 2000 runners in the boys open

Members of the boys and girls cross country teams competed in the Nike Cross Regionals Heartland race Sunday, Nov. 12. The race took place at Yankton Park in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The team drove up to Sioux Falls Friday, Nov. 10, and spent Saturday, Nov. 11 sightseeing around the city, including the actual falls.  

Junior Dalamar Read, who completed the race in 15:50, explaines how the race went for him. 

“I placed first in the boys open section 1 and 15th out of all 5 sections, out of about 2000,” Read said. “This was by far my best race in the season and I went into it with a lot of confidence which definitely helped my performance.”

Similarly to Read, junior Charlotte Caldwell also ran a very good race.

“I placed 55th in the girls championship race with a time of 18:31,” Caldwell said. “I felt really good about this race because I got a personal record. I competed really well and the atmosphere of the race was amazing.” 

Reflecting on the trip as a whole, Read shares the best and worst things.

“The best part, aside from the race itself, would have been downtime with my roommates [senior] AJ Lauer, [junior] Yazid Vazquez, and [sophomore] Carson Curry. We just got to hang out with each other and it was very enjoyable because I know them pretty well,’ Read said. “The worst thing about the trip was the drive up, followed by the drive back. Being in a car for 6 hours straight is probably the last thing I ever want to do”

Overall, Caldwell and other members of the team were able to do some sightseeing along with running while in Sioux Falls. 

“While racing was very fun, I really enjoyed getting to go see the Falls,” Caldwell said. “The Falls were really pretty and super fun to explore with my friends.”
