MIDLAND RECAP

Cross country

     With the Oct. 9 meet at North Linn we wrapped up our regular season. We have the conference meet at Bellevue Oct. 14, followed by the district cross country meet on Thursday the 21st.

     Monday (Oct. 4) we ran at Bellevue without Milo Smith, and we missed his scoring. Trenton Rickels was our number one runner again, with a time of 20:06. Jayson Ruley followed with a time of 21:50 and then Tristan Kunde with a time of 23:23. Next was Jay Bentley and Bryce Rushford with times of 25:50 and 27:56, respectively. The team was rounded out by Vincent Kunde running a personal best of 36:07. Kaitlin Kunde had a time of 29:58 for the girls.

     North Linn was pretty much like all year, with Trent leading with a time of 19:12. Jayson had a personal best of 21:07 followed by Tristan with a time of 23:12. Milo made it back with little practice with a time of 24:17. Jay and Bryce were next with times of 26:16 and 26:18. Vincent finished with a time of 38:21. Kaitlin finished with a time 27:31.
