2001 4A State Results

"You never expect to lose. You always believe in yourself and in the team, because without faith, you can't accomplish anything. To those of you who raced on Saturday, you were there to compete, and you did compete. You can't understand the bitter failure, knowing as you ran that your hopes were slipping away, every goal you worked for flaming out. There is little solace in not achieving your dreams, especially those dreams which never were beyond your grasp, but reality itself. You know how good you are, and imagine how good you could've been if for one race, the most important race you'd ever run, you could run like you had always envisioned. But remember this: those who trained with you, competed against you, watched you race your heart out, they will always know the truth of your legacy, and wish they could be you. " ~Anonymous

Saturday, the Junior Billikens season came to a shocking conclusion, taking 8th place at the State meet. It's frustrating to see a great season, and careers for some runners, come to such an abrupt end.

Coach Sothers, Coach Schmuck, and all your runners: Congratulations on representing St. Louis well in the 4A race. Coach Lampe and the runners @ Chaminade -- congratulations on your awesome achievement.
