Winning. Something Circle High doesn’t get to experience often. But this year the Boys Varsity XC team is going to change that. An undefeated team rolls through the season with confidence as they only have four meets left.

“I wake up in the morning and pee excellence. It comes naturally, I can’t help it,” says sophomore Ryan Derry.

Derry strongly contributes to the team, being the fourth runner. Every point matters and Derry gives it his all every meet.

The boys kicked off the season by earning a win at their first meet at the JK Gold Classic. Then they won the Wamego Invitational, competed against 24 other 4A schools and proved that they were a team with a lot of potential and a State champion contender. The wins continued and now, taking their fifth win at Halstead Invitational, the boys continue to keep proving to everyone that they are to be noticed.

“It’s fun to be a part of such a successful team at Circle. Every meet we are representing the school, positive or negative. So far, I think we are giving Circle high a pretty good image.” says sophomore Corbin Tandy. The team is built of young runners and clearly has potential for years to come.

Amongst the youth is one senior on the team, Avery Stuever. Stuever has ran and competed all his life. He has been very successful throughout cross country and track. However, this year is different. He has the chance to win a state championship, and he is taking it very seriously.  

“I know that the faster we run in practice, the faster we will run at state. That is why I am constantly pushing myself, and my teammates.’’ says Stuever. The chance of a lifetime has arose him senior year. He works very hard and deserves success this year.

Now all we can do is wait, and hope. Hope that Circle can bring home its third state championship in school history. What do the students think? Will the number one ranked team in the state come through and win it all? Or will they choke and keep the losing streak alive? We want to know what you think so follow the link down below and vote!
