I love youth sports. I especially love Cross Country.
I love my community–its youth, its spirit, and most especially its camaraderie.
I love it when youth work hard, establish goals, and realize their dreams.
I love it when I can share even just a small part of that beautiful accomplishment.
I know that what these dedicated kids learn on the Cross Country course will help them to be successful contributors to the country that I love so much…
Thursday night, I proudly watched my favorite team place all varsity runners in the Top 15, with every one of those runners receiving ALL CONFERENCE honors. I watched my daughter lead the Junior High team to score three runners in the top 10. I watched a team of more than 40 Junior High and High School kids push themselves to realize success…
Today I am proud and my heart is full. Although Ashley Grace’s 7th grade Junior High season has come to the end, both of us are looking forward to traveling to Ogallala to watch the high school varsity runners continue the proud tradition that Coaches Dustin and Alisa Favinger have helped the Haymaker CC athletes to build.
Today I am thankful to every one of these athletes for bringing joy to my life, and I look forward to many more proud and happy moments as I cheer on my favorite Haymaker Cross Country team!
