As the Haslett High School cross country teams wrapped up their season, some top performers were announced.

Top runners for the boys are Brad McMahon and Stephen Henry. The top runners for the girls are Lidia Clarizio and Amanda Young.

There are a lot of strong runners for both the boys and the girls. The top run for the boys was 17 minutes, 6 seconds. Top run for the girls was 19 minutes, 7 seconds.  Other than regionals, the best meet of the 2016-2017 year was at the Greater Lansing meet.“Each meet the kids are a little bit better then the race before,” coach and science teacher Kim Snook said.

Both of the boys and girls are only losing one senior to graduation this year, which bodes well for the team. The boys are a pretty young team with a handful of strong freshman runners. The teams are going to just keep growing and getting better.
