Ainsworth Middle School Runners Compete at State

The Ainsworth Middle School Cross Country team was represented by Ty Schlueter and Ben Flynn in Omaha for Middle School State Championships hosted by Papillion La Vista South.

Over 900 runners competed on a rain-soaked course, which caused the event to be changed to 2,700 meters and for the course to be very different from previous years.

Despite the conditions, Ty Schlueter and Ben Flynn put together great races. Having raced just two days prior at the Southwest Conference meet in Minden, the pair came back strong.

Schlueter would battle to a 38th place finish with a time of 10:38.8. Ben Flynn would finish 73rd with a time of 11:14.1.
