On the boys side things did no go very well either. Most notably was Terry Monette who got very bad stomach cramps and finished about 3 minutes slower than he is capable of. He is planning on breaking 18 minutes for the first time on a XC course against Allen Park Cabrini and arch rival Mike Mueller. Steve Mance, Foley's top finisher this meet ran finished an 18:33, after falling off the lead with 1 mile to go. The reasons were probably due to poor tactics and a poor diet before the meet. Both Steve and Terry beat Bryan Morehouse in the 3200m run at the regional meet in May. Steve ran 10:48, Terry a 10:53, and Bryan an 11:00 flat. Parker Turczyn is quickly cutting time and falling back into the shape he was in last season. Expect him to break 20 minutes within a meet or two. Jeff Maki ran his first 5000m, a race 50 times as long as his normal race, and ran the whole way through.
Overall it was not the most succesful meet but serves as a time trial to help set goals for the rest of the season. Although we may not have a full guys team again next meet we will have a contending Girls team against Cabrini, and the Guys team will probably have some pretty high finishes.
