On Friday, September 11, Caden Schweer headed down to Norris Penrose Equestrian Center in Colorado Springs, where the State XC Meet will be held on October 17. Caden took the line of the Pre-State meet with 4A schools from Colorado Springs. Due to restrictions on the number of runners allowed, Caden was unable to compete within his 3A Classification. Running with the larger schools showed no nerves in Caden, as he flew through the course.
Caden finished 7th in the meet on Friday evening with a time of 16:53. After all classifications ran on Saturday, Caden had the second fastest time in 3A and the fastest time of any freshman at the meet.
Caden and his teammates will run in Loveland – Mehaffey Park on Friday, September 18 or at Platte Valley High School on Saturday, September 19. With the shortened season, the Silver Knights have three remaining weeks of regular season before Regionals, which takes place on October 8.
