     Maquoketa Valley took the top two individual spots with Nolan Ries and Cy Huber, and went on to win the boys’ championship of the MFL MarMac Invitational Sept. 3 in Monona.

     The Wildcats dominated the meet, taking five of the top nine places and finishing with 22 points. Clayton Ridge was second with 62.

     “Nolan Ries and Cy Huber are two guys who have been to State before and ran a lot of miles this summer,” said Sara Dever, who co-coaches the Wildcats with Pat Meehan. “The dark horse in the race was Landin Frasher, who pulled through as our fifth guy. All the way down the line, this team performed well.”
