Bob Conley Invitational-Pocatello






The cool weather couldn't cool off the times at the Bob Conley Invitational held on the campus of Highland High School in Pocatello. 20 schools and 15 full teams participated in the meet. The JV teams got us started off right with some huge personal best by Gabe, and big and little Ben's. Keep up the good work fellas. The girls JV, despite not filling a full team also ran to personal bests- Charli took a huge chunk of time off to lead the girls and score a medal with a time of 23:35.22 and Zandi killed it-almost breaking 24 minutes in the process and is definitely in the hunt for the most improved award this year. The Rebeccas also score season bests.

The girls race was almost more nerve-wracking after the race than during...when they finally figured the scores correctly Star Valley had won handily with 71 points over Twin falls with 105. Hailey posted a personal best again running 19:50, followed closely by Brittney (who will break 20 minutes soon) and Brooke who ran 15th despite taking a digger. Randi ran with the leaders for much of the race before her recent illness got the best of her but she managed to hold on to 17th. Ashley went to the pain cave early and often, Abby ran a personal best, and Kirsten is finally getting back in form after dealing with injury for the last couple of years. Nice work ladies, lets keep the momentum going!

On the boys side they brought their "A" game. Learning from their slow start at Bear Lake the week before--the men of Star Valley got out early and often and buzzed through the course running many personal bests and running six runners within a minute of each other. Keep running hard men...lets earn some hardware of your own. Competing and running strong as a team may be enough to win it next weekend.
