ELBING — Elyria Christian School’s two cross country runners competed on Thursday in the Berean Invitational and one of them earned a medal.

Olivia Peters earned a Top 20 girls finish with a time of 23:15.60 to bring home some hardware. Josh Beck competed in the boys’ race and was 43rd in 20:02.5.

“Berean has historically been a very fast course,” ECS coach Philip Hinman said. “This year did not disappoint. This was Olivia's first varsity race, so it was great that she was able to go home with a medal. Josh took more than a minute off of his personal best.  It was an encouraging race for both runners.”
