Where and When: Oct. 10 at St. Croix Falls
Overview: “Barron, Chetek-Weyerhaeuser, Cameron and Cumberland provided tough competition at SCF’s home meet on October 6th,” St. Croix Falls Coach Amy Klein noted. “The fast, flat course was a different and welcome challenge leading into the last few important meets of the season.”
Summary: The St. Croix Falls boys won last week in a team race that was incredibly close. The Saints and Cameron tied with 39 points each with their five scoring runners so the team champion was determined by the sixth runner where SCF freshman Connor Dyzak secured the win for St. Croix Falls. Barron was just three points behind in third place. The SCF girls ended up in fourth place as a team.
Comments: “A total team effort led the boys to tie for first (and win in the sixth place tie-breaker),” Klein said. “The girls’ team ran smooth races and collectively took third place overall. Alise Wiehl ran a particularly strong race and double athlete (cross country and volleyball) Emily McCurdy posted a new PR (personal record). Payden Bainbridge and sisters Abby and Aleah Jensen contributed strong finishes.”
Boys’ Highlights: Viktor Knigge and Mason Peer led the boys’ team finishing second and third overall.
Girls Highlights: Sierra Braund led SCF with a top-10 finish with Brianna McCurdy coming in two spots later in 12th.
