Recently, Kerman Christian School’s fourth, fifth, and sixth graders participated in cross country meets through Kerman Unified School District’s (KUSD) sports program. In all three of the races, Kerman Christian placed in the top three racers. The coaches, Beth Morse and Dallas Nord, donated their time to the cross-country team. The runners practiced twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday. The meets where on September 27, November 1, and November 15.
Morse loves to run, and she loves to teach kids. She loves to make the kids personal record time better. Morse said, “The training program was a wise decision. I liked how the runners ran long distance on Tuesday and short distance and fast running on Thursday.” The team was able to improve their ability to keep their pace, but also improve their overall speed.
All the runners improved their race times. Nevaeh Nord placed in the top three in all three of the races. The coaches were very proud of the runners’ hard work and dedication. The runners got treated to a pizza party after school to celebrate their hard work. The cross-country runners represented Kerman Christian to the best of their ability and were complimented by KUSD administration for their excellent behavior at meets. Kerman Christian is very happy that they participated in cross country.
