“The volunteers did an incredible job keeping the invitation running smoothly with hot conditions making the afternoon races difficult for the athletes. Several runners struggled to combine physical exertion, heat, etc. said VVS boys coach Mike Dunne.

“Personally, VVS had a really good day,” he said. Bauer’s finish was sixth out of 262 sophomores in the race. Nathan Geroux was 11th out of 200 freshman competitors, he said, and “established himself as a major contributor to this year’s team”.

Dunne concluded: “As a team, we were happy where we finished. We work hard to help kids understand that there are many more important races to come, despite their excitement at a major invite on their home course. So, like many teams, we have a long way to go, but we are happy with our initial performance and the direction we will take from now on.
