Runners of the Week: 9/7

Y'all blew us away.

This week's performer of the week poll was our biggest in some time.

Ok, we'll admit was OUR BIGGEST EVER.

Shoutout to you guys.

Jenna Hutchins (Science Hill) and Eric Mitchell (Beech) were voted the runners of the week after their season best races last Saturday.

Hutchins won the Cherokee Classic in a new meet record. Her 17:23 time up in Knoxville also ranks her No. 8 in America through the first two weeks of the new season.

Not too bad.

The Northeast Tennessee native is off to a heck of a start this cross country season. Not a bad way to continue momentum from a state record last June.

Beech senior Eric Mitchell set a new career-best time with his second place finish at the Coleman Midgett Invite last weekend. He ran 16:18 for that runner-up spot, knocking 23 seconds off of his season best from earlier in the year.

Congrats Jenna and Eric on being voted as our runners of the week!
