LCHS Cross Country 24 Hour Relay

LCHS Cross Country Team 24 Hour Relay

The Lincoln County Cross Country Team recently completed the second annual 24 hour relay, achieving a total of 221 miles over a 24 hour period.

The team gathered Friday, October 31st at the Lincoln County track. At 4 p.m. they began the relay with each participating member of the team running a one mile leg of the relay rotating through the team members as each leg was completed. Throughout the event, each member ran anywhere from one mile to as many as 30 miles.

The relay is a season closing race for the team, a way to spend time together as well as drawing down the season. It is also a way to give back to the community. This year the team is donating funds gathered for a local family fighting a battle against cancer. Even the coach is donating $1.00 for every mile completed. It's refreshing to see a coach and team working together, not only towards achieving their personal goals throughout the season, but also to reach beyond themselves and find time and energy to give back to their community.

The new coach, Adam Gideon, has made great strides "pun intended" in cultivating a young team to compete at levels not seen with this cross country team in recent history. Many of the athletes also blew past their personal bests this season.

Exerpt from Coach Gideon regarding the state meet:
Boys 6th place (Last year 22nd), Girls 7th place (last year 14th), Lions are the most improved team in the State thanks to the effort, will, and sacrifice of the 20 HS and 4 Shrimpies running and laughing machines that combined for approximately 4500 miles of training this season. Next year top 3 for boys and girls CAN and WILL happen. Overcoming genetics and coaching isn't easy but you did it Lions!

Congratulations to the Lincoln County Cross Country Team. Thank you for an incredible season, and thinking beyond yourselves by reaching out and helping someone in our local community.
