NEWTON — To McPherson High cross country coach Gentry Nixon, it’s not about how her Bullpups started the season, it’s how they’re peaking come league, regional and state time.

She believes the team is making strides after showing much potential during Saturday’s Newton Invitational.

“We ran great today,” Nixon said. “It was a beautiful morning to run and they took full advantage of it. Almost every runner ran a PR today, many of them by 2-3 minutes. It was awesome. We had some seriously standout performances by many of our freshmen JV runners today.”

Nixon clicked off the names of several performers. 

“Brooke Miller took more than 4 minutes off of her best time, turning in the sixth-fastest time for the girls today,” Nixon said. “J’anae Spaich took more than 2 minutes off of her best time and turned in the seventh-fastest time for the girls. Simon Steinert and Seth Morgan both took almost 2 minutes off of their fastest times and turned the seventh- and eighth-fastest times for the boys.”
