It was a picture-perfect day to not only run a meet, but for every Glenrock Cross Country runner to achieve personal best times during the Glen Legler Invitational Meet in Casper at the Paradise Valley Golf Course, according to head coach Chris Gray.

“The runners ran really well. The course was a great course to get really good times and our kids really took advantage of the day and the course,” Gray said.

“All of our runners set personal bests for the year – this includes the four junior high runners. By having 100% of our athletes improve their times earned the team the Glen Legler personal record plaque beating all of the other teams by the percentage of those that improved versus the total number of runners each team had,” he said.

Gray believes it was a great way for the kids to take a step toward getting ready for their state meet in October.

“Coach (Misti) Allen and myself (are) extremely proud of each runner,” he stated.

Results for the Glen Legler Invitational Meet in Casper are as follows:



John Halvorsen, 6th place, 17:19; James Halvorsen, 16th place, 18:27;Joel Bryan, 29th place, 20:16.
