sports logo(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – For many students, Thanksgiving break is a time to relax, but for four LRHS cross country runners, it’s a chance to race at Footlocker South Regionals in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Varsity cross-country runners Mason Ingallinera, Aurora Melzar, Emma Paliotta and Conner Chapman will participate at Footlocker on Saturday, Nov 30.

Senior Ingallinera competed the last two years while the other three runners are competing for the first time.

“I’m really excited to compete for the last time,” said Ingallinera. “I’m hoping that I’ll be able to PR (personal record) especially with the cold weather.”

Junior Paliotta shares her excitement for her first Footlocker race.

“I’m ecstatic to race at Footlocker,” said Paliotta. “I am excited for the experience of running in cool weather and running with people from other states. It will be such a great experience and I’ll get to share it with my best friends.”
