Franklin HS Cross Country Runners Demonstrate Persistence!


Franklin HS Cross Country Runners Demonstrate Persistence!

Cheers to our HS XC runners: Harbin, Riley, and Shane. All three finished strong and set personal records in Swannanoa at the ACA Ramble by the River
I was super proud of the personal goal-setting and progress our HS runners have shown, just adding in the practice of Tuesday/Friday “pacing/endurance” runs (in spite of the 2016 unseasonably high temperatures at 3:30 pm!  Learning how to push and pace oneself in various conditions is key!  Directly transferring this experience and learning to academic and lifelong lessons is just one example of what Franklin facilitates at all grade levels, through sports, projects, and Expeditions.
Finally, a shout out to Lisa Browning, for heading up the Franklin XC program.  She recently shared this historic FSI XC data:

Below is a list of top 10 all time performances for Franklin.  It shows the 10 fastest students, their times, and when it was run.  This could be good motivation for your students to try to get on the board.  However, running is a fantastic individual sport in which a runner’s first concern should be enjoyment and personal improvement.  All of our runners are showing growth as runners and seem to be having a good time.
