Lakes Region Championship
Other 4th

When the starting gun went off at The Lakes Region Cross Country Championship Race, the Cougars already knew they were winners. Not only has the Cougars Cross Country Team’s performance been outstanding this season (featuring several overall wins), but many of the boys have found a sport and a team that feeds their body, mind, and soul. The regional meet, hosted by St. Paul’s School, featured a fast 5K course through fields and forests. Nearly every single one of the Cougar athletes set a personal record and all demonstrated intense mental toughness to overcome the pain of a grueling sport. Heads were turned as the Cougars, age 12-15, crossed the finish line with 131 high schoolers from the Lakes Region. The outcome: Cardigan Cross Country placed 4th out of 11 Lakes Region schools; AMAZING!

Middle Scools

The mighty Cougars partnered with Positive Tracks today to fundraise for our local running community at Indian River School. The event, called The FUNSIE ONESIE RUNSIE was a 1.5 mile run on our home course while . . . you guessed it, wearing a onesie (or otherwise festive outfit)! The boys recruited over 60 students and 15 faculty runners to sweat for the cause! Onesie wielding runners including cows, heroes, squirrels, sharks, rabbits and much more roamed the hills and mud puddles. Mr. Klein, donning a giraffe onesie, and Mrs. Edson, a Cookie Monster, upped the stakes with a coaches’ challenge. Pride, homemade cookies, and school spirit were the icing on the cake. The fundraiser was quite literally a “wild” success! Be sure to check out smugmug for pictures of this event. Also, stay tuned for our regional meet in 2 days!

Vermont Academy hosted 7 teams today in a friendly 5K run through the forested hills around the Wildcat’s school. This low key event gave the Cougars a chance to play with running strategy and form. Many of the boys worked together on the course, playing with when to surge and when to relax. Tiger Yang ‘22, Pi Mongkhonovanit ‘20, and Tom Choi Wo Li ‘20 found continued success with their pacing and finished strong. As usual Diego Escalante ‘20 and Oskar Hakkarainen ‘20 tucked themselves into the pain cave and led the Cougar team with stoic fortitude. Cardigan racers are in peak fitness and are beginning their taper for the regional meet at St. Pauls in 2 weeks. They will spend this long weekend recharging their batteries with family, food and much-deserved rest.

Cardigan Varsity Cross Country Team stepped up to the starting line with 9 other regional teams and a total of 107 competitors at Proctor Academy. Fueled by recent success (3 wins in a row), the Cougars were hungry to place in the top 3 teams at this highly competitive meet. Despite Proctor’s hilly and sandy course, finish times were very fast! 80% of the Cougar runners ran faster than our last regional meet at Holderness. Of note, Pi Mongkhonovit ‘20 has improved his 5K by 12% ... astonishing! The seventh grade Cougars, Tiger Yang ‘22, Mateo Escalante ‘22, Spencer Hutchinson ‘22, and Reaghan Moore ‘22 shocked spectators as they all moved up in regional rankings. Long story short, our dreams were realized when Cardigan placed 3rd overall in the inter-lakes region!

Record: 3-0
