Luke Sinclair led our boys in the JV 4K race, finishing in 4th place in a time of 17:12. Xzavian Fiebelkorn was next in for the Gorillas in 17:48 to claim 8th place. Luigi Pittalis finished next for the JV boys in 18:11 for an 11th place finish.
Summer Talsma continues to improve and finished in 21:22 for a 19th place JV finish. Emma Schweigert ran her 4K in 21:32 to finish in 20th place in the JV race.
Varsity boys were next and Aaron Voigt was our lone participant in this race. He was able to shave nine seconds off of his time from last season on this course to finish in 16:36 and claim the second place medal.
The cross country team will travel to Chamberlain on Thursday afternoon, Sept. 14, for their next meet.
