BLISSFIELD, Mich. –

Blissfield senior Justin Bateson has the dedication and drive to be the kind of cross country runner he is today.

Bateson set out at the beginning of the season in search of earning medalist honors at the state championship, putting in dozens of miles each week. He put these miles in, hoping that when he tapered back, the speed would come.

“I wanted to go out with a big bang,” Bateson said. “I started the season with a lot of mileage. The season ended up being kind of up and down for me and because of my high mileage, it left me drained towards the end of it.”

Things didn’t go as well as he had planned. Not only did he struggle with good and bad weeks, he got sick in the midst of season towards the league meet.
