The team had another solid day at the Big 8 Grade Level Meet at Lake Farm Park. The scoring format for this meet varies from most meets. Each runner is ranked against others in their grade only. Our top 7 places make up our score. This frequently gives some of the younger team members the direct opportunity to contribute to team scoring. Full results are linked on our result page. The boys finished 2’ND just 1 point behind LaFollette. Scoring for the team were: Hunter Shadman (#2 Freshman), Jonah Simonson (#3 Junior), Walt Strange (#4 Freshman), Owne Cooney (#6 Freshman), Peter Negrut (#6 Junior), Henry Johnson (#6 Senior), and Danny Hegeman (#7 Freshman). Well done all!!
