Junior Camry Cummings should have looked no further than her senior teammate Grace Holt for the motivation and guidance she needed to make the jump she wanted.
Cummins wants to be a top runner and part of the Olantang Girls Crossing Team.
Cumming said: “Grace is really inspiring because she really raised it last year. “Last year her times were even better. I think I saw that and I was like, ‘I want to be like that. So, I talked to her and we got together and she was very helpful this summer. It was really great and I am so grateful that she helped me with this. ”
Cummings is the daughter of former Olegani girls basketball coach Kate Cumings.
“Camry has really increased her distance this summer,” said 19-year-old coach David Dewesse. “I look forward to seeing it bear fruit. She has always been part of our senior Varsity team – as a new student – but she has not taken that big step forward.
Davis set a goal for each runner and Holt ran more than 400 miles before the 2020 season. Kumming, a basketball player, started running three miles a day and gradually increased to six.
“I gave her an overview of what I did last year,” Holt said. “My brother (Sam Holt) ran for Olentanji. He was a very good runner and he always gave me advice. From my second year to my junior year, I really improved my mileage and it grew.
“I told her to do the same and be smart and listen to your body. The goal was to get her in the right shape because if you start exercising at the beginning of the season, you just want to be conditional. That is what she did. ”
Holt gave cumming exercises to improve her shape and suggested various places to run her hills or the Freedom Park on her flat to simulate courses for various meetings.
“In July, he made me do some speed sports,” Cumming said. “So, I would go at a slower pace than 20 seconds. We built temporary miles and made some gaps. ”
Cumming has a balanced run with basketball. She was on the track team in the spring when she competed in the AAU basketball.
“It was really challenging to do those two graces,” she said. “I go from track practice to basketball practice. It was definitely hard to fix, but I am grateful that it was a great experience.
It was her mind that made her do both at the same time.
“I (basketball) tried to be more grateful,” Cumming said. I did my run and now we are doing shooting exercises. He was definitely trying to be positive and positive because I was afraid every day that it would not be good.
Holt was the top runner or second in the Braves last season. But a broken leg delayed her work.
“It only happened after we met in the spring,” Dewese said. So, she has been sidelined for all the seasons and is going through all that (physical therapy). She did a lot of cross-training just to get that gradual build back to where she was a year ago. ”
Holt Cummins’ willingness to help was born out of the culture of the group, especially the word of the group, Ohana, to the family word Hawaii.
“Cross-country is a team sport; We are all here for each other and we are all here to support each other no matter what. ” “This is the meaning behind it. When someone falls, we have to stand up for each other. ”
