THS, MHS cross country run in Effingham
The Tonganoxie High and McLouth High cross country teams will hardly be strangers to each other after this month, as the teams competed in the same meet for the first of two straight weeks Thursday at the Atchison County Community High School Invitational.
The McLouth boys took third in the team standings with a score of 60. THS didn't field a full team. On the girls side, the Chieftains finished second (49) and the Bulldogs didn't field a full team. Atchison topped the boys standings (50), while ACCHS won the girls competition (20).
Six Bulldog boys finished in the top 20 individually, including a pair of top-10 finishers. Ryan Bristol led the way with a sixth-place finish (21:27), followed by Logan Hoobler, who came in seventh (21:29). Other top MHS finishers were Kevin Jardes (16th, 22:53), Jason Bristol (18th, 23:12), John Malone (19th, 23:19) and Nic Bair (20th, 23:20).
Trevor Bonebrick led the Chieftain boys with a time of 22:18, good enough for 11th place.
The THS girls had a pair of top-20 finishes in Bonnie Mondahan (11th, 21:38) and Kelsi Briggs (15th, 22:42). The second-place team finish was their second in as many meets this season.
Despite not qualifying in the team standings, McLouth had a trio of solid individual performances in the girls race. Savannah Noble took sixth (20:23), Kayla Steffey came in 20th (23:16) and Emily Hoffhines took 22nd (23:59).
Both teams will be back in action Thursday at the McLouth Invitational. The first race is set for 4 p.m. and will start on the practice field east of the high school football stadium.
Warriors send 23 to Effingham
The Tonganoxie Middle School cross country team was also in action last week, as 23 runners competed at ACCHS. Twelve runners earned top-five finishes in their respective divisions, including six each on the seventh- and eighth-grade teams.
Seventh-grade girl medalists were Alyssa Scott and Erin Williams. Boys included Zeb Huseman, Bowen Jones, Chandler Hamman and Chandler Caldwell. Eight-grade girl medalists were Isabella Behm, Emily Chambers, Anahi Puebla and Grace Woods. Boys were Drew Cook and Tommy Wetta.
TMS' next race will be Saturday against Clark Middle School at Wyandotte County Park.
