Lueking breaks SMS record
Paul Lueking, above, an eighth grader, broke the Sullivan Middle School boys cross country record twice last week. Lueking did it the first time on Sept. 18 by running the course in 10 minutes and 27 seconds. One day later, Lueking broke his own 1.8 mile record with a time of 10:15. The previous mark was 10:43, set by Dossan Lamb in 2016. Coach Annie McCammon said the team’s hard work is starting to pay off and a great example of that is Lueking. She added that he destroyed his own record when pushed. “I’ve got a feeling this is just the beginning. It wouldn’t surprise me if he ends up running somewhere around 10 flat. He really is that good,” said McCammon.
