Josh Bodkin-Freshman EHS Cross-Country

Josh Bodkin-Freshman
EHS Cross-Country
This week we take our hat off, or should we say shoe off to freshman Josh Bodkin of the EHS cross-country team. Last week at the Grafton Invitational meet Josh turned in his personal best time of 18:46 and a 23rd place finish overall. This was enough to garner his first medal of the season and to help the boys team to a 4th place overall finish out of the 11 team meet. Maybe the most impressive thing about this particular race was that Josh ran the majority of it with only one shoe!! He lost one of his shoes early in the first mile of the race and was still able to pass at least 15 other racers according to his coach. His efforts by his coach were described as tough, fluid and gritty.


to Josh! What an awesome display of determination and literally leaving it out there!!
