Today was a big meet for Liverpool. They ran against their arch-rival Baldwinsville. There were about 100 kids in the race, just from the 2 schools.
One of Liverpool's top runners has been out sick for two weeks. He was back today, but still not back to full speed.
This was the lead pack for the first mile or so. Alex is in there somewhere.
He picked off a few Baldwinsville guys.
Alex ended up placing 7th overall, and 3rd for the team. And ran a personal best 16:58 in a 5k race, he also ended up 21st on the overall leader list for his high school on their home course. He was pretty happy about all of that. Sadly however, Baldwinsville had a better day overall as a team and they won the meet. Liverpool will be back at full capacity the next time they face each other though, and they won't know what hit them!
