The Knox Central Panthers were willing to suffer on Saturday, and their efforts paid off. The boy’s team swept both the JV and Varsity contests. With heat indexes in the mid-90s by mid-morning, the Knox Central All-Comers held this past Saturday certainly tested the athletes’ mental toughness.
Mitchell Trent and Zak Willis led the Knox Central Cross Country squad with first and second places, respectively. Trent commented, “Zak and I left the pack behind right around the second mile, and we just didn’t look back. We fought all the way to the end, but we have a lot of fun with that. Coach Rieth told us to go out and run consistent [mile] splits, and that’s what we did.”
