On Wednesday, October 19th, at Plantes Ferry,
North Central, Mount Spokane and University toed the starting line
with 6-0 records. The most competitive meet the teams had seen all
season was made even tougher with the mixture of Shadle’s elite
runners seeking individual spots at Regionals.
When the dust settled, NC proved why they’re still the number one boys
cross country team in the State. Nevetheless, as far as any of the
coaches could remember, the regular season record had never been
decided at the final race by three undefeated teams.
Special recognition belongs to the lead runners that contributed to
such a dramatic and furiously-fast race: Nathan Weitz (SP), Hunter
Johnson (MS), Kai Wilmot (NC), Keith Williams (NC), Jake Hombel (Uni),
and John Dressel (MS).
The GSL Regional Cross Country Meet to decide State competitors will
be on Saturday, October 29th at Wandermere Golf Course.
