Chippewa Hills boys build for future

REMUS — It was a building season for coach Zach Hatfield boys cross country team at Chippewa Hills this season.

The Warriors finished seventh in the Central State Activities Association Gold Division.

“The boys met the goal of improving greatly during the season and learning to race tough and with grit,” Hatfield said. “We had multiple races through the season and the entire boys team improved their season records and PRs. Racing a 5K is always a challenge.”

Aidan Hollandsworth had a PR of 17:54.

“He had huge improvements during the season and has learned how to be gritty and tough racing,” Hatfield said.

Nick Sherman had a personal record of 18:02.

“He ran as our No. 1 most the season and will be able to see big improvements in the future with continued hard work,” Hatfield said. “Eight of the top nine on the boys team are all returning and look to improve from this year’s performances.”

As for next year, “with consistent off-season work the boys should be much improved from this year” Hatfield said.
