The Bret Clements Bath Invitational is one of the larger early season meets in the state of Michigan. The Forest Hills Eastern varsity cross country teams participated in the medium-sized school "Class 2" race with 15 runners. Our JV runners competed in a race with over runners from over 48 different schools. Fortunately we had a beautiful racing morning and great racing conditions on the course. Our girls varsity team dominated the field with 33 point 1st place finish and 6 runners placing in the top 12 of the meet, while our boys varsity finished 2nd behind a strong Haslett team. In the JV girls race, we finished 4th behind defending state champion EGR and perennial D1 powerhouses Northville and Rockford. Our JV boys have some work to do in developing depth (we finished 9th), but still had some lifetime personal bests and season bests. Individual highlights include:
- Boys Varsity: We had three varsity boys post PR's today. Seniors Kyle Korte and Josiah Lambert have combined to run 65 HS cross country races in the career and today posted new lifetime best times of 17:02 and 17:45 respectively. Freshman Aiden Sullivan stepped up with an 18:23 and filled the 7th spot for us today.
- Boys JV: This race featured four new lifetime personal records. All four came from our 9th grade group. Owen Mast (20:30) posted a 3:00 improvement from his first race of the year, Tadeyose Asefa (22:12) ran 14 seconds faster than his previous PR, Ty Kemp ran a 3:44 PR (23:34), and Michael Wormmeester (26:37) broke the 30:00, 29:00, 28:00, and 27:00-minute barrier all in one meet.
