Coed Varsity Cross Country · 2018 Disney Cross Country Classic


On October 4, 2018, 43 runners of Johns Creek’s Cross Country team headed out in one bus to Orlando to compete in the Disney Cross Country Classic meet held at the ESPN’s Wide World Of Sports facility. Runners from all over the United States were represented in this exclusive cross country meet that challenged the competitors with the 5K run, but everyone had to deal with the sweltering heat and humidity with temperatures in the high 80’s that had the runners feel of about 107 degrees!
The first group up to run were the varsity Boy’s Captain Hook division. According to head coach Danny Brock, “Jack Hoben and Max Lichtenfeld had a great race in the heat of Florida. Jack had a fantastic last half of the race with a great kick to earn a medal for 10th place.” Coach Brock added that the boys came in 8th overall.
