Harvey opens the 2018 season with three returning starters, including a pair of runners with regional meet experience in senior David Boykin and sophomore John Basco.
Boykin enters his final year on the trail with a 16:55 personal record. He finished second in the Chagrin Valley Conference last fall.
“David set a few very high goals for himself his senior year,” said second-year coach Torrez Edwards. “David is a fearless runner that gives it all each race.”
Basco’s best time is 16:56
“JT is a very young and talented runner,” Edwards said. “JT has great mid-distance speed in addition to the great number of high mileage he can endure.”
Junior Nate Bohannon and sophomore Thomas Sicker provide depth for the Red Raiders. Bohannon holds a PR of 17:39.
“Nate is a smart runner. (He has) great timing and athleticism on controlling different paces for each race. Nate is a third-year runner who is not afraid to put on some high mileage weeks,” Edwards said. “(Sicker) is a first-year athlete, very athletic wrestler. He has a strong core and he is very interested in becoming the best athlete he can be each day.”
Senior Amya Stewart is in her first year of cross country after placing eighth in the CVC 800-meter run during the track season last spring.
“(Stewart) is a very competitive athlete that loves to race the best racers around,” Edwards said. “Amya is very ambitious to run on the next level.”
