It was the debut of the Watervliet Middle School Cross-Country Team at the Teske Invitational held at the Van Buren Country Fairgrounds. As the panthers stepped into the box to begin the race, the weather could not decide if the clouds were going to rain or if the sun was going shine.
Runners had to traverse through fields, gravel pathways, & wet grass. Running shoes were very muddy as each participant passed the finish line. The pack of panthers was led by Abel Villarreal who ran a 12 minute and 50 second race and was the first middle school runner to finish! Within the next minute Wyatt Epple & Amiya Hinch crossed through the finish line. There were 29 Watervliet athletes that participated in the race.
The Middle School Panthers will be back in action next week, Wednesday, at the Saugatuck Invitational. Nice work Panthers!
