SIDNEY – Riley Emerick and Isabelle Rammel both move up to the number five spots on the All-time fastest Cross Country board for GHS. Emerick ran a personal record Saturday with a time of 16:10, and Rammel ran a personal record with a time of 19:19 to secure these spots in GHS history.
Both Riley and Isabelle earned Runner-up titles at the Miami Valley League (MVL) Conference meet Saturday.
“These two have really put in the work – both off-season with strength and mileage, in-season attacking practices hard, mental preparation, and in the hours outside of practice making good decisions with nutrition/hydration/sleep – to make these goals a reality,” said Greenville cross country coach Stephanie Lind. “It takes a lot of hard work to get to the top of that prestigious list.”
Greenville saw 12 of its 22 runners achieving personal best at the MVL meet.
“The kids really showed up to compete and race this weekend, with 12 of our 22 athletes achieving personal bests yesterday,” Lind said. “As a coach, you cannot ask more than that. They have all put in so much hard work over the course of the season and it is nice to see it pay off for them at the end when it matters most.”
“We are looking forward to Districts this weekend at Cedarville, and hope to get a few athletes out to Regionals,” concluded Coach Lind.
