BOYCEVILLE — The Bulldogs hosted the WIAA Division 3 Sectional cross country meet this past Saturday, October 26 on their course at Tiffany Creek Elementary.
With runners from 22 different teams, both the girls’ and boys’ teams had a good showing.
The Boyceville girls finished tenth as a team. Freshman Emma Gruenhagen led the Bulldogs with a 29th place finish in a time of 22:50.9. Head Coach Corey Day calls this a respectable time. The Lady Dawgs have been working hard this year, improving throughout the season.
Next to cross the line for the Lady Dawgs was Naomi Hillman in 39th followed by Noelle Wheeldon in 59th, Haylie Rasmussen 74th, Emma Chich 84th, Rachel Montgomery 99th and Shiloh Wheeldon 103rd.
The boys finished fifth as a team. Coach Day mentioned that finishing in the top five at sectionals was a goal this year for the boys.
Nathan Corr ran his best race of the season, finishing in 13th with a time of 18:08.1 but fell short of qualifying for a second trip to the state tournament.
“I was happy with his performance and it is hard not getting the results you want, but it should not define your season and Nathan understands that process.” remarked Day.
Nathan was just one minute and twelve seconds behind race champion, Dan Anderson from Chippewa Falls McDonell Central.
As for the rest of the boys, Steven Rasmussen was thirty seconds behind Nathan, finishing in the 21st slot. Brian Johnson was next in 36th, Cade Klefatd took 39th, Kaiden Standaert 55th, Nathaniel Chich 66th and Samuel Chich 73rd.
Clear Lake and McDonell finished first and second respectively in the boys’ team standings while the Glenwood City girls claimed their fourth straight sectional championship with the Cameron ladies finishing as the runner-up. Colfax freshman Molly Heidorn won the girls’ individual title.
