Our Lake Nona Cross Country team will be attending the Pre-State Invitational hosted by Florida State University on Saturday October 7, 2017. This event will be hosted at the FSU campus. This is a varsity only meet and the last one until they take on districts.

Cross Country runner, Emily Thompson (10) has been competing since her freshman year at the age of 14, with her fastest time being 23:25 minutes. On their last meet, the Flrunners Invitational, Thompson shares, “As a team we had a really good race and we could see how our training has helped us improve.” Personally, Thompson believes she tried her best running through hills, which were out of her comfort zone. For their next meet, the Pre-State Invitational,  Thompson’s personal goal is to lower her time. As a team, Thompson hopes to improve their times and encourage each other during their races more.
