Anders Prater gave the varsity boys race a go and came out 18th overall. HIs time of 19:59 marks his third sub 20 minute 5k and was about 30 seconds faster than his previous race.
The JV girls were led by Abby Bennett who placed 6th overall running 26:22. Both Megan Hodena and Elizabeth Meyer ran excellent races! Both completed the 3.1 mile course over 2 minutes faster compared to their Milaca races.
We saw a complete team effort from the JV boys with three different Jags running as first Jag on course. The race began with Ryan Knudson running in the top 10 while the remainder of the team packed up and began moving up runner by runner. Jacob Barstad broke away from the Jaguar pack about a mile into the race to eventually catch Knudson. Two miles into the race the duo of Brock Bjerke and Aaron Mulder began an assault on the field. Brock caught both Knudson and Barstad to finish top Jaguar and finish 13th overall running 22:29, 4 seconds off his personal best. Barstad finished 17th, Mulder 20th, Knudson 21st, and Dylan Mans 26th to round out the scoring. The team finished fourth overall out of nine teams.
Looking ahead the Jags run in Mora on the Springbrook golf course on Tuesday, run at the Pierz golf course on 9/19, and the Milaca Mega Meet on 9/24.
