Volunteers wrap up cross country season, eye future

Rodney Haas
Miner Sports Reporter

Lee Williams High closed out its cross country season this past weekend at Saturday's Bullhead Mohave Invitational.

The season forged a strong foundation to build on for coming years.

"Our runners made great improvements over the course of the season," said LWHS coach Joan Abraham. "Being an all-freshmen team had its benefits and pitfalls. They had no one to look up to and had to find a leader among themselves."

The one runner to stand out this year was Brandon Allred, who ran six races. He placed 51st out of 56 runners in his first race but ended his year with a ninth-place finish out of 36 runners with a time of 18:57.

"He was very motivated to improve his times and he worked hard to motivate his teammates," Abraham said.

Jeffrey Nagel also helped lead the Volunteers. After placing 46th in his first race, Nagel ended the season with a 21st-place finish (20:50).

Other runners for Lee Williams included Tyson Spencer, who battled through an injury midway through the season; Kyle Schoppmann, who shaved 4:30 off his time at the end of the season; and Kyle Henson, who started the year with a 50th-place finish and concluded the year with a 31st-place finish Saturday.

"We will look to add to our team next year and build on the success we experienced this year," Abraham said.
