The Red Raiders scored 64 points to place 2nd to Whitefish Bay’s 43 at the 2018 Purgold Invite hosted by Cudahy at Sheridan Park.
It was a record day for the team with 5 of the 8 runners turning in PRs. Henry Wellenstein led the team with a PR 16:05 for 2nd place and improved his ranking to #10 All-Time for Tosa East. Arthur Wellenstein placed 8th with a PR 17:00 and now hold the freshmen school record. The previous record of 17:09 was set by Sam Potter in 2012.
Max Finco ran a season best 17:09 for 15th place, Grant Heus PR’d by 55 seconds to finish 19th in 17:27, and Nate Blischke ran a season best 17:33 for 20th place.
Liam Nicol also ran a PR 17:35 for 21st place, Steven Koss ran a PR 19:26 for 41st, and Ryan Morita finished 64th in 19:25.
The weather certainly helped with the performances, but the boys stepped up this week and made significant improvements to get us closer to our team goals for the season.
