The Big Orange Wave led the charge at the Battlefield Invitational last Saturday
The Big Orange Wave led the charge at the Battlefield Invitational last Saturday, as Coach Boudreaux’s squad posted a dominant score of 20 points to capture the week four meet. The Wave placed 11 runners in the top 15 and five in the top six to beat the competition in Port Hudson.
Joseph Ellis finished second overall, posting a time of 17:02 over the slow and challenging course. Chris Cuntz (third), Ben Langley (fourth), Luke Bella (fifth) and Peter Kelly (sixth) rounded out the top five.
The time gap between Ellis and Kelly was a healthy 28 seconds, as the Wave continues to build depth and improve each week.
CHS Cross Country Coach Pete Boudreaux was impressed with performance. “It was a great outing for the guys on a very slow course. This is a challenging course with changes in terrain and many turns on the three-mile run,” said Boudreaux. “The times may have been slower than the guys would have liked, but we improved and continue to get better. It was a nice job by our young men.”
The Wave is back in action Saturday, Sept. 29, on a familiar course at Highland Road Park for the St. Joseph’s Invitational. The meet starts at 8:30 a.m. and a large field is expected for the week five race.
