2023 Brighton XC Captains
Hello, my name is Luke Campbell. I started running during Springtime in 7th grade for Track season. I was inspired by my brothers who had been running for a while, and I quickly took a liking to the competitive nature of the middle-distance events. Originally running was simply a breath of fresh air, but the more I ran the more I liked it. So, in my freshman year, I joined the Cross-Country team instead of playing Football. It didn't take long to fall in love with both the sport and the program. What I love most about Cross Country are the lasting friendships made through competing for something bigger than myself. Outside of cross country, I am involved in the Brighton Young Life program, The Truth Finders club, and I belong to the Naz Church. I am very excited about the 2023 XC season, and the day-to-day process of working hard with my teammates and pushing myself and others to be the best runners we can be. Last year we had a great season, this year we look to do even better!
I’m Bode and I started running in middle school because some of my friends were and I figured I could try it out for a year. I ended up falling in love with the sport, the process of seeing your effort translated into times, and most importantly the connections I formed with all of my teammates. Since I started running in 7th grade I’ve made lifetime friends which I like to hang out with in my free time. I’m looking forward to a great season with the team this year competing at the highest level.
Hello, my name is Ian Cox. I am a senior and I started running in 6th grade for a Boy Scouts requirement. During that time, I trained for a 5k race up-north and discovered a passion for the training process. I continued running to stay in shape for hockey until COVID in 8th grade when a couple of guys on the XC team got me to take it more seriously. I joined the team during my freshman year and fell in love with the sport and the community. It combines a perfect amount of hard work and mental strength with some funny moments in between. I look forward to building on our 3rd place finish last year and competing with the best teams in the state again this season. Outside of cross country, I enjoy going on adventures with the Boy Scouts, playing in the marching band, having fun in pond hockey, and dominating in nuke’em and ultimate. Overall, I am really looking forward to seeing how as a team we can attack this season with grit and determination.
Hello, My name is Tyler Langley. I am a junior and began running in 6th grade. I started running to improve stamina in both basketball and soccer. I quickly fell in love with the sport - the running high, the rush of adrenaline from racing, and cheering on teammates. Cross country is the ultimate mental battle, and our team makes the journey spectacular. All the ups and downs, the blood, sweat, and tears are celebrated in a non-replicable brotherly bond. I run year-round and enjoy learning about cars, participating in leadership, and playing both pickup and unified basketball. I truly believe that this team has the ability to grow into something even stronger this year.
