After spending the last six weeks training on the trails and tracks of Cedar Park, Team Rogue Prep was ready to move the action to downtown Austin and show off the hard work they have put in since the beginning of April. With light winds, overcast skies, and solid training behind them, the conditions were set for fast times and big PRs.
In the elementary school race made up of 32 youth between the ages of 7 and 10, Team Rogue Prep was led by the swift running of nine year old Rebecca Rivers with a PR of 6:37 and a first place finish in the female 9 year old category. Following Rebecca was Owen Daugherty with a PR of 6:55 and a third place finish in the 9 year old boy’s category. Also setting a PR and just missing the medal stand with a fourth place finish in the female 8 and under category was 8 year old Sarah Ewers with a time of 7:39.
In the next race, Team Rogue Prep dominated the front of the pack of the middle school race made up of 25 girls and boys between the ages of 11 and 14. Leading the entire race was Jeremy Brown with a 1st place finish overall and a PR of 4:53. Running behind was brother Ryan Brown with a time of 5:29 and a first place finish in the 11 year old category. Cutting 25 seconds off from last year’s Congress Avenue Mile was Justin Campbell with a time of 5:36 and a third place finish in the male 12-13 year old category. Also setting a PR, breaking 6 minutes in a mile for the first time and just missing the medal stand was 11 year old Jackson Christian with a time of 5:57. Rounding out the middle school Team Rogue Prep was Joshua Ewers with a PR of 6:57.
In the high school girls open race, seventh grade and 12 year old Team Rogue Prep runner, Madison Boreman, led the pack of 41 high school girls with a PR and a blazing time of 5:01. Her time would have placed her in the top 20 of the invitation-only high school girl’s elite race. Also running in the high school race as a middle schooler, 14 year old Ashley Chapa knocked nearly twenty seconds off her prior mile PR with a time of 5:34.
Running in the ultra competitive boy’s high school open race made up of 74 runners who didn’t qualify for the elite squads, 14 year old Leo Perez set a mile PR of 5:13 as he looks forward to joining the Cedar Park High School cross country team as a freshman this next fall.
With the spring Team Rogue Prep training wrapping up in the next couple of weeks, details will be forthcoming on the summer 8-week Team Rogue Prep training program starting June 7th at Milburn Park in Cedar Park – stay tuned!
