Mikayla Weiss (3rd) and Aislinn Hunter (8th) also showed off their summer training using their PR's to lead the middle school girls to a second place finish. We had several new comers to the middle school girls also help in the scoring, Sophia Roehl (13th), Sijlje Kindseth (18th), and Nora Berry (25th).
The varsity boys had a big challenge by racing the #2 team Fargo Davies in the first race. But the boys ran tought to finish in second place behind Davies. Seniors Leif Larsen (1st) and David Hettich (3rd and PR) lead the way. Richie Osborn placing a career high 5th and with a new PR was the boys 3rd runner, followed by new comers Emery Cruz (21st) and Aaron Springer (33) rounding out the boys scoring. Brendon Swanson and Evan Welsh each had almost two minute PR's, again proving how much the mileage they put in over the summer paid off.
The Middle school boys were lead by Ryan Meyer in his first XC race and placed 9th overall, he was followed by Jakob Danula, Collin Allan, Luke Hoffman, and Jake Hansen to help the Middle School boys place 5th!
