Wildcats News · Fall— Cross Country— Rossview Invitational


The Wildcats had an astounding weekend at the Rossview Invitational on Saturday September 26th. This course was the most unusual one the athletes have raced on, as they had to jump over fallen trees, hay bales, and mud puddles. However, the obstacles on the course proved to be less of a challenge, and more of an excitement factor.

Senior Elliott Hughes took 6th place in the boys’ race with a time of 18:08, followed by Jacob Harzbecker in 14th with a time of 18:43. In 20th place came Atticus Simon who ran a time of 19:05. Freshman Braden Huynh had a great race, following in 4th for the varsity boys at 19:32. Only two seconds short of Braden, Jude Wilt finished at 19:34. The top 5 boys had a great race, and the team placed third out of 15 teams.

The Lady Wildcats took 6th place overall, with Junior Makenna Merkley in a 4th place finish at 21:40. Hailey Dobson and Haven Thompson came in 19th and 20th for the girls, running 24:28 and 24:29 consecutively. Olivia Gessford took 40th with a time of 25:50, and Mia Jones followed in 42nd at 26:02.

Both teams had great races this past weekend, and will be taking on the course at Sango Elementary on October 3rd. Let’s go Wildcats!
