With both boys’ and girls’ teams advancing to Sectionals after 2nd place finishes, our cross country student-athletes put their hard work and dedication on display at Regionals. The girls started Saturday morning off well. Abby Litwiller paced the group with a season best time of 19:18 for 9th place. The girls ran tough and were only outdone by a strong #5 ranked Eureka team. Our 2-7 runners had great performances across the board: Anna Bieber (20:04), Chrystal Cornwell (20:08), Rachel Andris (20:27), Amelia Kistner (20:47), Madison Bales (20:47), and Raquel Birky (21:01). The boys followed suit with Owen Dare leading the group in a personal best of 15:42 for 4th place. The race saw #9 U-High narrowly beat out our Spartans by 12 points. Our 2-7 runners similarly saw success on the boys’ side: Anthony Ragland (15:54), Logan Demling (16:06), Carter Phillips (16:33), Caden Clark (16:46), Cooper Phillips (18:10), and Brad Schardan (18:30). We saw multiple season and all-time bests across the team that allowed for a 1-5 spilt of only 1:29 on the girls’ side and 1:03 from the boys. Looking forward to Sectionals at Elmwood on Saturday, our runners seek to stamp their ticket to State and continue to see their efforts being rewarded.
