West Side cross country hosted the Pirate Challenge on Friday. The course was set in Dayton and it was designed last year by the boys’ team coaches. It was a small meet; only Malad’s team and Preston’s JV team were there.
On Wednesday, the cross country team is going to a meet at Plymouth hosted by Bear River High School.
At the beginning of the Pirate Challenge course, the runners ran up a large, steep hill. After a brief flat, the course featured a downhill. Then runners faced a long, gradual incline after which they came to a fence crossing made of hay bales and boards. Next in the course was a steep downhill which eventually led to the road directly west of the school. Racers ran alongside the canal, through the pole vault pit, behind the bleachers and past the pavilion. The final loop took runners to Dayton Park and onto the canal road which led back to the school and the finish line.
