Boys' track team waiting for the starting gun.

The girls’ and boys’ cross country teams competed at the Allendale Falcon Invite on Saturday, Oct. 7. The Titans faced a large field of teams that included Rockford, West Michigan Christian, Catholic Central, West Michigan Aviation, and other high schools. The races were very successful as most of the Titan runners finished with either personal or season records.

“The event Saturday, the Allendale Falcon Invite, went extremely well. In my opinion, it was the best meet for Grand River Prep cross country, as a whole, in my three years of coaching,” said coach Kevin Squire.

The invitational was especially difficult with both the girls’ and the boys’ competing with nearly 200 other runners. The performance highlighted the team’s progress from the start of the year.

“I think the whole team has improved, especially the freshman boys, and even the freshman girls,” said senior Kevin Kurgat.

The top finisher for the boys’ team was junior Marcos Garcia, who finished with a 17:02 minute 5k. This was the second fastest time ever record in Grand River Prep’s history.

Both teams are having a successful cross country season. Earlier in the season the boys’ team won their first ever invitational at the Kelloggsville Rocket Invitational.

“This was one of our best races, ever, and one of the proudest moments of my coaching career,” said Squire following the Kelloggsville Rocket Invitational win.

The cross country team competes again this Saturday at the Portage Invite in Kalamazoo.
