Racing in Smyrna last weekend, the boys rode strong finishes from their top three to a third place overall finish. This week, the top four boys led the way as the Raptors finished ninth out of 40 scoring teams at the Clara Bowl Invitational in Rome, GA. Kevin Frost finished first for Ravenwood again, followed by Matthew Rigsby, Jack Dang, and Jack Dellinger. These four were separated by 47 seconds, a solid 1-4 split. Carter Myers, Nolan McGinnity, and David Kertai were the next wave, finishing 5th-7th and sealing the top ten finish in a strong field of teams primarily from northern Georgia.
Running in the mixed JV, Trevon Miller, David Story, Thomas Abramson, Christopher Caruso, John Collin Askew, Robby Hill, and Brendan Goodbred were 1-7 for Ravenwood. Boys and girls JV were scored together and Ravenwood defeated Blessed Trinity by 20 points for the team title.
After a long run Sunday and a relaxing Labor Day, the guys will get after it for two weeks as they prepare for the Trinity/Valkyrie Invitational on September 16 in Louisville, KY.
