The boys cross country team placed 6th out of 21 teams at the Wisconsin Lutheran Invite at McCarty Park with 189 points.
The coaches put a “speed limit” on the team this meet to keep the entire varsity running together through the first mile. We worked on a fast finish over the last 2.1 miles after a 5:55 first mile where the boys were in 127th-133rd places.
Henry Wellenstein moved up to finish 5th out of 156 runners in 16:47, Nate Blischke placed 39th in a season best 17:33, Arthur Wellenstein placed 41st in 17:34, Max Finco placed 50th in 17:51, and Grant Heus placed 54th in 17:57.
Steven Koss nearly tied his PR in 18:27 for 87th place and Aaron Van Meter ran 19:21 for 128th place.
This was the final tune-up before the Greater Metro Conference Championship Meet at Rotary Park (Menomonee Falls) on Saturday, October 13.
