Cross Country at Chesaning

Both the boys and girls cross-country teams traveled to Show Boat Park in Chesaning yesterday to compete in the second of three conference jamborees. The conditions were unseasonably tough with temperatures near 90 degrees, but overall both teams really ran well.

The girls top 6 packed up to all finish in the top 26.  Madison O’Deay lead the way with her 14th place finish, Abby Youngstrom in 16th, Kaylee Argyle in 18th, Caitlyn Mieske in 19th, Hannah Neiderquill 21st, and Hope Kloha in 26th place.  The girls collective performance was the key to improving their team standing from 4th at the first jamboree to 3rd place at yesterday’s jamboree.  Congratulations to Madison O’Deay for finishing in the top 14 and continuing her quest to earn second team all-conference honors.  Kaylee Argyle is still in the hunt despite finishing outside of the top 14 in yesterday’s contest.  With a strong race in the final jamboree she can find herself right back in the thick of that race.  Hannah Neiderquill had a great race yesterday running a 49 second personal record.  Congrats Hannah!  I also want to recognize Keeler Steffen, Analise McMillan, Kaela Gregory, and Grace Cairy for working hard and battling in yesterday’s heat.

It was evident that the boys team was ready to race yesterday.  After an 11 day layoff from their last race at MSU the boys team got out to a fast start through the first mile.  Darren Bila and Matt Tetloff battled in the top 10 of the race from start to finish.  In a close finish Darren finished in 7th and Matt finished in 10th respectively.  Darren continues his pace to finish with 1st team all-conference honors and Matt continues his pace to finish with 2nd team all-conference honors.  Both boys will need to run smart and tough in the final conference jamboree in two weeks to seal those honors.  Congratulations to Darren Bila, Matt Rogers, Carter Vasicek, and Mason Metiva on running personal record times despite the warm temperatures.  Congratulations to Matt Tetloff and Brenden Klich for running season best times.  The boys team once again finished in 4th overall.

Both teams are back in action this weekend as they travel to compete in the Carson City Crystal Invitational.  Wish them luck!
