Facing difficult competition at Seven Lakes and Tomball Memorial the past two weekends has proven to be beneficial for the Faith Academy track team.
This past Thursday the Knights ran at the Rice Consolidated Meet in Altair. They were once again facing schools that are larger and faster but stepped up and not only ran personal records, but also worked their way to the podium to receive medals.
In the varsity division, senior Brody Schiller was fourth in the 300-meter hurdles running a PR 46.87 and finished sixth in the 110-meter hurdles.
Classmate Brianna Gallaher placed second in the 1600 despite battling hip and knee injuries from training on the hurdles for her steeplechase races.
In the junior varsity division, freshman Maddie Odom won the 100-meter hurdles and came in fifth in the 300-meter hurdles despite falling early in the race. Fellow freshman Eric Carlin earned a sixth-place finish in the 3200.
All runners are commended for their determination to reach their goals and not letting tough competition get the better of them.
Faith Academy will compete next at the Kinkaid Relays Thursday March 7.
