Cross-Country: Hall sets school record in Alexandria
Pequot Lakes Cross-Country
ALEXANDRIA — Eli Hall ran a sixth-place time of 16:07.6 for the Pequot Lakes Patriots boys in the Alexandria Invite Saturday, Oct. 8.
Hall’s time was a new school record, beating the previous record time of 16:14 set by current Patriot assistant coach Clayton Foster.
“Straight from the gun, Eli shot out like a cannon running right behind the lead pack,” head coach Jeff Brever said in an email. “Eli had one goal in mind – it was to break the school record – and he did not deviate from his plan. Eli's mile split times were 5:00, 5:15, 5:20 and then his last 1/10-mile finished with a strong kick. Eli has worked very hard over the summer and it is paying off.”
The Patriots finished 20th out of 27 teams in the boys race. Hall was followed by Liam Zins and Shane Crowley, who finished in times of 17:56.8 and 18:02.3, respectively.
