Lumen Cross Country takes First and Second Place at Jensen Run

Faith Smith wins her first career CC race at Lumen


Faith Smith, sophomore at Lumen Christi, celebrated her first ever victory at the Jensen Run last weekend at Ella Sharp Park, Oct. 12.  The race was moderately large, making for a fun day of running. For this 5k, Smith was able to run the length in nineteen minutes and forty-two seconds, a time worth recognition. Although Faith has run cross country and worked extremely hard for two years, she has never won individually at a race. So, that day was memorable for her as she received first place. Looking back on the day, Faith explained: “I was tired, but really happy because I have never won before.” Congratulations, Faith, and here’s to more great finishes!
