Cross country team has worked hard this summer preparing for a strong season

The Weiser Wolverine cross country team is prepared for the 2022 season. As coach Scott Hale enters his fifth season coaching the Wolverines, Hale feels that this team  more than most others, is not just ready AND willing to train from day one, but eager to do so. He is very excited for the season based on the work ethic he has seen so far. 
 Weiser has a strong turnout with numbers for the boys team this year. There are eight runners consistently coming out with a few more still on the fence.  While the girls team is looking to grow with only four runners who have been able to consistently be at the first few practices.The teams do often grow as the school year officially starts. 
 Weiser will have some upperclassmen running for the first time with four senior boys and two senior girls, but only one returning boy and two or three returning girls. 
 Hale shared that a lot of the runners seem to have taken summer running pretty seriously. Kylee Quinton and Kendall Rynearson are returning runners who did extremely well last year and he expects even better this year. Claire Matthews is a freshman but was a great distance runner throughout middle school track and cross country, so Hale is excited to see her be able to help out the team immediately. 
 On the boys team, Levi Huston returns to cross country after taking some time away. Josh Kelley and Judah Parsons are both new to high school cross country this year. Grant Walker and Kale Langley are freshmen. While he has only had a few practices with them so far, they are showing great potential to have a very strong season. 
 They will have strong competition in the SRV especially from Parma and McCall who both always have great runners.  
 While the goal is always to do well and improve throughout the season, Hale shared that his biggest goal for his team is to get them to enjoy running and to not take the sport super seriously.  He hopes his runners are focusing on pushing themselves to be better than they were last week or month, but even more importantly, to have fun along the way. Hale shared that it is very easy to get burned out with running if you’re not enjoying it. 
 The team will open their season at the McCall Jamboree this Saturday at 11 a.m. 
 Their next meet will be on Thursday, Aug. 25 in New Plymouth. This will be a good preview for the season as all of the District 3 teams will be there as well as several other schools our size and smaller.
