The KC boys cross country team huddles to end practice on Thursday.

After many rewarding off-season practices, it’s finally fall, which means that the cross country teams are ready to compete.

Coach of the boys’ team, Wesley Reith, has some set goals he wants to accomplish this year.

“Some goals for this year would be to win the SEKC, the Area 8 Championship and have a team qualify for state.” said Reith.

The boys’ team has four seniors this year that Reith believes will be great leaders for the rest of the team.

“I think as far as leadership goes, Mitchell Trent and Tyler Rice will be leading this team this year,” said Reith. “They are both seniors and veterans and they know what it takes.”

Practices are starting to be more regular for the runners, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t been working hard in the off-season.

“I think overall we look really good this year, the boys have been practicing on their own time and it shows,” said Reith. “We’re looking better than we were last year, so I think we are doing really well and I’m looking forward to see what the team can do once the season starts.
