JACKSON, N.J. – Over the weekend the Kane Wolves traveled to Jackson, N.J. to compete in the Six Flags Wild Safari Invitational on Saturday.
The course wound around the safari park located outside Six Flags Wild Adventure Park. The flat terrain made for fast times as six boys competitors broke the previous course record, while the girls’ course record also fell.
The girls’ varsity team began the day with the first overall race and showed the day was going to be fast. Kristin Boyer and Taylor Beimel both ran aggressive first miles, putting themselves into position to set season bests. Newcomer Savannah Anderson followed in the next chase pack, only to be followed by Bettina Cherry, the final runner for the lady wolves. Before heading into the safari section of the course, all girls made crucial moves to position themselves better for a rolling set of New Jersey hills.
Boyer would eventually post a personal best of 20:08, good enough for 11th place a medal performance. Beimel followed in a season best time of 21:52, just missing a medal by seven spots in 37th. Both Anderson and Cherry set personal bests by minutes, showing steady improvement thorough the season. Anderson finished third for the lady wolves in 26:28 while Cherry would finish in 28:45, rounding out the Lady Wolves’ efforts.
