Dinos set to host cross country meet
With the season about half way over, the home meet comes at an opportune time for the team as they prepare for the final stretch of the season.
The Dinos are hoping that the previous experience of running on their home turf at the Carbon Country Club will put them in good position over fellow region teams.
Head coach Telisse Allen said the recent rainy weather can make things difficult for runners.
"Weather plays a huge role whether it be hot, cold or even rainy," said Allen. "Runners in general will tell you how much harder running in grass is compared to a harder surface."
Allen said both the boys and the girls teams have improved over the course of the season. For the boys, it will be the last home meet for Carbon High's Garrett Marsing. Marsing, a senior, has broken many records for the Dinos during his four-year run with the team.
A summer of running has been one of the keys to his success this season, Allen said.
"This summer coming off a great track season he and I talked and I told him summer miles were going to be the turning point for him this year," she said noting Marsing runs about 45 miles per week during the season.
Overall, the Dinos are looking for a strong push from their home meet to carry them through the rest of the season. The races start at 3:30 p.m.
