Cedar Springs senior Corey Bowers competed in the MHSAA D1 State Meet held at Michigan International Speedway on November 6. The meet did not go as planned for him and he finished in a time of 16:29, in 74th place. 

Bowers was in 12th place halfway through the race and was ready to make a strong move going towards the infield when a diaphragm issue arose. “While it wasn’t the race he was aiming for, he went out extremely smart and reserved,” said Coach Justin Jones. “This one was out of his hands and that’s okay as long as you learn from it and respond with what you learned about yourself the next time around. You can get bitter or better, I always say.” 

Looking back on Bowers’ high school cross country career, he has been first team all-conference all four years; conference champ the last three; has been part of two team OK conference championships; all-regional the last four years; and has competed in the state meet all four years.  He has also been all-state in both outdoor and indoor track. He currently holds the fifth fastest time in Cedar Springs’ cross country history with a time of 15:37. He has plans to continue his running career in college. 

Bowers isn’t quite ready to hang up his spikes for the season just yet. He is hoping to bounce back as he plans to run in the MITCA Michigan Meet of Champions on Saturday, November 14, at Freeland, Michigan.
