Ben Thiele Lone JH Husky Medalist at O’Neill Meet


The West Holt JH Cross Country team traveled to O’Neill on Friday, September 19th. Temperatures drove up into the 90s giving a much different feel for the meet than just one week ago.

At one of the largest meets of the year, there were JH runners from Ainsworth, Boyd County, Crofton, Elkhorn Valley, Laurel-Concord, Neligh-Oakdale, Niobrara/Verdigre, O’Neill, Pierce, Valentine, and West Holt.

With 50 girl runners and 47 boy runners vying for 10 medals, Ben Thiele was the Husky’s only medalist with an 8th place finish in the one mile race. He finished with a time of 6:10. Ben Slaymaker came in 27th with Austin Smith only three seconds behind him for a 28th place finish.

Lindee Wentworth led the West Holt girls with her 17th place finish in a time of 7:26. Peyton Randolph rounded out the top 20 in a time of 7:30. Leighton Mlady, Lydia Stenka, and Caitlin Bussinger placed 26th, 41st, and 45th respectively. All three shaved a few seconds off of their mile time in Ainsworth.

Despite the very warm temperatures, West Holt came out ready to compete and improve. The Huskies will travel to Ord for their next meet on September 26th. The meet starts at 4:30.
