2016.10.08 Cross Country: Glory Days Invitational

Manassas, VA (October 8, 2016) – Rain fell for the entirety of nine races, from freshman boys to seeded varsity girls. The weather dampened no spirits or competitive fire, but certainly muddied a few runners from socks to singlets. With many top Loudoun runners missing, the meet lacked the star power of previous iterations, but still gave plenty of opportunities for new runners.

When it came time for the seeded races, one had to wonder whether the swampy conditions in the middle of the course--through which the runners had to pass three times in each race--would hold up. But three Tuscarora runners Derek Johnson, Ava Hassebrock and Emma Wolcott proved up for the challenge finishing in the top 15 of their races.

Chas Sumser Photography was there to capture the action and emotion and posted this gallery of images from the event.
