West Holt JH Cross Country Competes at Home

Coach Flannery

September 29, 2018

The West Holt Junior High Cross Country Team competed at home in the West Holt Invitational on Thursday, September 27, 2018.

It was a competitive meet with 60 girl and 58 boy runners. The course was 1800 meters. Seventeen different schools had junior high runners vying for the top ten medals in each race.

The Huskies performed very well at their home meet. Maddie Davis led the girls with her runner-up finish. Katelynn Kratz had a strong finish passing several runners in the last 100 meters to finish in 12th place. Abby Thiele ran a solid race finishing in 16th place in 7:40. Maci Nemetz cut eight seconds off of her time from last year’s meet to finish in 22nd. Both Rylee Poessnecker and Catarina Ketteler cut time from their earlier mile races in the season.    

Isaac Pistulka left everything he had on the course to finish in 1st place. Ian Larson earned his 8th place medal by holding off an Ord runner at the finish line. Tyler Jelinek cut 28 seconds from his last year’s time. He moved up 15 places from last year as well to finish in 15th place. Emmet Wentworth ran one of his best races this season and was just two seconds behind Tyler finishing in 16th place.

 I was very pleased with times from this meet. The kids faced some strong schools and competed well.  A big “thanks” to all of the fans that came out to cheer on the Huskies!

The West Holt Junior High Huskies will finish their season at the NVC meet in Rock County. The meet starts at 4:00 on October 5, 2018.
