Bloomfield/NVC Results

October 17, 2014

West Holt JH XC Finishes Season


         The West Holt JH Cross Country team traveled to Bloomfield for the Bloomfield Invite/NVC Meet to end their season.

         There were runners from Boyd County, Creighton, Hartington-Newcastle, Niobrara-Verdigre, North Central, Osmand, Winside, and West Holt. The course was 2500 meters.

         Excitement came as Ben Thiele finished as champion of the JH race with a time of 9:10. He had been battling with the runners from Boyd County all season and came out on top to finish his JH career. 

         Other excitement came when Ben Slaymaker and Austin Smith earned their first medals in 7th and 8th place respectively in the NVC meet. They finished 13th and 15th in the Bloomfield Invite.

         Competition on the girls’ side was a little tougher with about 30 runners competing. Lindee Wentworth, Peyton Randolph, and Leighton Mlady all finished their JH careers with solid performances finishing 14th, 16th, and 19th respectively. Caitlin Bussinger and Lydia Stenka did not compete.

         I was proud of the hard work that these athletes put into the season, especially given the fact that most were dual sport athletes.

         I would also like to thank everyone who took the time to support the JH Huskies whether through encouraging words, treats for the kids, or attendance at the meets. Your support is truly appreciated!
