HP Cross Country Runners Finish Well In North Shore Half Marathon

Sunday, June 13 2010

Highland Park High School Boys Cross Country was well represented in the 2010 North Shore Half Marathon which had 2067 finishers. Senior Ari Rothschild (ran using Garrett Smith's chip due to an ankle injury) finished in an outstanding 9th place overall!   He ran a time of 1:21:11, which is just under 6:12 per mile pace.   Sophomore Jonah Hanig (the day after running 4:46.42 for a full mile at the Midwest Distance Gala) finished in 19th place.   His time was 1:24:28.  Another sophomore, Emmett Smith finished in 27th place with a time of 1:26:40.   Ben Swerdlow (HP Class of 2009), who now runs for Cornell College, finished in 43rd place running 1:29:00.  
Great job HP!

Thanks Jordan. Unfortunatley Garrett suffered an ankle injury during an ultimate frisbee game yesterday and was unable to run so I took his bib number and ran as Garrett for the half marathon. Hope you get well soon G!
