CROSS COUNTRY: Jacks runners impress at Little Falls
LITTLE FALLS -- The Bemidji High School boys cross country team cracked the top five at the Lucky Lindy Invitational in Little Falls Thursday, while the girls team made the top 10 by taking ninth.
The Lumberjacks put on an impressive showing in front of a sizable field of teams.
“Regan and her sister Kayla (DeWitt), and Gwen Youso did a nice job going out and racing hard today,” BHS head coach Ryan Aylesworth said. “It was a pretty humid day, which is pretty tough on a lot of the kids, but they did a great job battling through the whole race.
“And then the boys, they ran a really smart race and were moving up throughout the field throughout the whole race…. It was a solid effort out of our boys pack and our girls pack today.”
Riley Berg was the fastest finisher for the BHS boys, clocking a time of 16:55.3 to place 16th. Gage Mostad followed behind him in 17th (16:55.9) and Nicholas Youso made the top 25 by taking 23rd (17:10.4).
Regan DeWitt posted the top time on the Lumberjack girls, finishing 15th in 20:03.5. She was followed by Youso in 17th (20:15.0) and Kayla DeWitt in 28th (20:52.2).
Moorhead won the boys team title over runner-up Hopkins, which claimed the individual title thanks to Eli Hoeft’s winning time of 15:43.8. Alexandria took home the girls team title, while runner-up Sartell nabbed the individual title with Ingrid Buiceag-Arama’s 19:13.2.
Bemidji is next scheduled to compete Tuesday, Sept. 18, at the Bagley Invitational.
