BK Endurance Athletes off to an impressive and muddy start for 2015


BK Endurance Athletes opened the 2015 cross country season on a muddy 3.1 mile course at the West Seneca Invitational. The rain and cool temperature couldn't slow down the team at their season opener.

Junior Ian Sikora led the boys varsity team with a time of 21:53 while Senior Chris Jackson crossed the finish line in 24:46.

Sophomore Jordan Love, Freshman Alicia Opett and Jack Mancarella all made their varsity debut at this race.

Alicia conquered her first 5K varsity-distance race with a time of 25:09 to finish forty sixth out of 128 runners! Jack finished his first varsity-distance race (and his first athletic appearance with BK) with a 5K time of 25:45 while Jordan finished his first endurance event with a time of 25:56.

In other running news, 7th grader Jenna Bottcher competed in the 5K Pound the Ground for Americas Veterans Outreach. Jenna ran the 5K race with a time of 29:51(9:37 minute/mile average) to finish 3rd in her age group!

Beach Training Day 9/3/2015

Beach Training Day 9/3/2015
Caution: Hard Workout When Wet!

Nice job with practice today, everyone. Today we ran well in hot weather and did a series of water drills. Our water drills are designed to mimic the body mechanics of running and provide low-impact resistance. Doing workouts like these targets core and stabilizing muscles that are vital to good form and strong running...and its fun.
