Cross Country Lady Dragon sets PR at Grain Valley, named Athlete of the Week
This week’s Cameron High School Athlete of the Week comes from the Cross Country team.
Freshman Zoe Foreman finished sixth at the Grain Valley ‘Sock it to Breast Cancer’ Invitational last Saturday October, 1, coming in at 21:46.49, the season best time for a female runner. Foreman was also the top female freshman at the meet, and improved her previous personal record time by a minute and thirty-nine seconds.
“Zoe’s done a great job for the team this year.” Cross Country Head Coach Kurt Dickkut said. “She’s had some hip issues that have flared up sporadically, but each time has returned with a solid work ethic and competitive spirit. She should expect to have a great high school career if she continues on the same patch that she’s traveled these past two months.”
In a radio interview with Cameron’s KKWK 100.1 FM regional radio station, Foreman spoke of the difficulties of succeeding as an underclassman. “It’s pretty hard just trying to keep up with all of the older girls that are more experienced than me.” she said.
Foreman also spoke of the nature of her team as well as the advantages of co-ed sports such as Cross Country. “All of the boys and girls do train together. The boys push all of the girls and the girls push some of the boys too.”
Foreman is additionally involved in Interact.
