The Cowboy cross country team had two meets within three days and the first took place on a cold, windy Williston course. With 13 teams competing, the Cowboys were able to finish sixth on the women’s sida.

As has been the case for the past several meets, Sydney Anderson led the way for the squad.

“Sydney ran her best time of the year,” head coach Nathan Horgeshimer said as he talked about his young harrier. She finished tenth and her time of 16.38 was very good.”

Solid races were also run by 28th and 36th place finishers Morgan LeMieux and Brooke Fettig. LeMieux’s time was 17.35 while Fettig came across in

17.56.

Cross country scores are calculated by using the top five scoring places.

In this case, Lexi Clarke and Amber Kukla were those two scorers. Their  places were 38th and 43rd and the times were 18.01 and 18.24.

“Lexi ran this race to see how her knee felt before regionals,” Horgeshimer stated.

We also had a nice pack come across in the 44th through 46th spots.

Jurnee Murray, Trae Murray and Corrie Dobitz finished in those spots with times of 18.35, 18.40 and 18.44.”

Other varsity girls who ran included Danielle Benz and Shannea Schaper.

On the men’s side, Killdeer had one competitor. Jon Mossett finished in the 68th spot in a time of 21.34. Colby Dukart’s time of 26.12 was good

for the 79th position in the junior varsity boy’s division.

“These two ran their first 5K’s on the season and both did a nice job,” Horgeshimer concluded.
