Boys Cross Country
2017 Season Preview
The boys cross country team returns six of the 10 runners who competed in last fall’s state tournament series. Junior Nick Perkins is coming off a record-setting sophomore season, in which he established a new school record of 15:55.17, topping the old mark of 16:04. One month later at the semi-state, Perkins ran 15:55.60, missing his own school record by 0.43 seconds. Seniors Dave Schrader and Chandler Gibson return for their third varsity seasons. Last season, Schrader ran the third-fastest time by a junior in program history. Sophomores Chris Figueroa and Sam George are back for their second varsity seasons. Last season, Figueroa ran the fourth-fastest freshman time in program history. The Rebels will look to younger runners coming off of strong track seasons to fill out the varsity lineup. This group includes juniors Michael Runholt and Calder Robinson and sophomores Ryan Flick, Liam Irwin, Max Peeples and Ethan Gosser.
