From John Heflin

This year Camden Cross Country team followed the path of the harriers before them. Each year I tell the runners from day one that I hope that they would run to the very best of their abilities. However, I am interested in having them run the real race in which God would have us to run. I want them to be prepared for whatever God has for them in this journey we call life.

This was apparent through the year. Senior Joe Geiger was running with George Spiros in one meet and George did not think that he could finish this race at Lancaster High School. However, Joe Geiger pushed him to the finish line. I told them after the meet that’s what it is all about.

We all need each other, when life throws you a fastball we need to be there to help. Our team has been for years, “one team, one dream, one heart beat.”

This embraced our team early in the season. We won many meets this year and overcoming many of the ranking teams. I hope that they will know that it does matter when our paths take us and we will always remember the verse Mark 12:30: “Love the Lord, thy God, with all thy heart, and with all thy soul.”

We went out to eat after most of the meets. I often express to them the concept of the family. We took some of the runners to the University of South Carolina football game. Again, we are “one heart beat.”

They are now a part of the history of the cross country teams that had and will run here at Camden . This year team runners were the following cadets:

Quin Armstrong, Matt Brody, Max Bryan, Michael Donovan, Simon Falk, Sanders Forrester, Gabe Fort, Joe Geiger, Sebastian Lein, Jacob McGuire, Lucas McGuire, Brandon Mendia, Michael Moses, Cullen Rigby, George Spiros, Jennings Stein, and Max Zaslower.
