Josh_national_junior_olympics_2Since I was teaching at all Community locations this weekend by video (and I can’t even mention it without saying I’m really pumped about this weekend at CCC!) that allowed me to make the trip to Lawrence Kansas (Kansas University) and watch Josh and his 14 year old cross country team compete in the National Junior Olympics.  One month ago they won state; two weeks ago they finished second in the Midwest regional to qualify for the National Junior Olympics.

It was brutal cold, but the boys did not let that distract them.  They figured since they were from Chicago and some teams were from Texas and California that it might be to their advantage.  Out of the 25 teams that qualified, the Naperville Track Club finished 9th. I think the guys thought they should have done better.  I still think 9th in the nation is pretty good.  Congrats!
