Boys Varsity Cross Country, Girls Varsity Cross Country · Dani Thorner and Flynn Prather Named Putters Athletes of the Week


Dani is a junior on the Lakota East Girls Cross Country Team

Dani just joined the distance runners last Spring, and started to show signs of success, right before COVID-19 shut down the track season.  Her cross country debut was at the Loveland Sunset Quad on Monday, August 24th.  She placed 9th overall in a time of 20:48 for 5k (3.1 miles).  Then on September 5th, at the Lebanon Running Warrior Invitational, she dropped an impressive time of 19:47.6 for a 10th place finish in a much bigger meet.  That time makes her the 25th fastest girl in Lakota East history



Flynn is a senior on the Lakota East Boys Cross Country Team

We knew Flynn was in for a big senior season when he ran a personal record time of 17:39 for 5k (3.1 miles) at our team time trial.  He placed 9th overall, with a time of 17:44, at the Loveland Sunset Quad on Monday, August 24th.  Then on Saturday, September 5th, Flynn destroyed his previous personal record by running 16:54.4 for a 10th place finish at the Lebanon Running Warrior Invitational.  That performance makes Flynn the 28th fastest cross country runner in Lakota East history.
