MS Cross-Country Season Begins!
It’s another year and the weather has been favorable for cross-country! This season we are running with approximately fifty 6th - 8th graders. The team is very well balanced, hungry to run, and hoping to continue our conference successes. Team captains are Kourtney LaBeause, Alivia Smith, Claire Moll, DJ Busch, and Riley Hackbarth. Our first meet was at Prescott where we faced a tough New Richmond team. We had some excellent individual performances by Angelica Olson, Liberty Grant, Claire Moll, DJ Busch, Cole Becker, Blake Olson, and Cougar Holder. Both of our teams took a close second to New Richmond. We are looking forward to flipping the results next time we meet on their course. Saturday, September 20th was our first home middle school meet at the SCC Cross- Country Trail. It was a beautiful morning and a great race. The boys’ team faced Grantsburg and took second, even with DJ Busch taking third overall. The SCC MS girls’ and the Colfax MS girls’ team were neck and neck during the race, only to miss winning the meet by two points. We had four girls in the top ten. This will speak volumes when we see Colfax again at conference. Liberty Grant took 3rd overall with Angelica Olson, Claire Moll and Brooklyn Mishler rounding out the top ten. It is going to be an amazing season. I hope you can come cheer us on!
