Boys Varsity Cross Country, Girls Varsity Cross Country · Boys XC Win Mississippi 8 Conference Championship

The Hornet XC runners went to Becker on Thursday afternoon knowing that the team title was going to be too close to call. “I was confident we would run well today. All our training has been going as planned, maybe even better,” said a happy and relieved Coach Trutna. Kade Layton finished in a familiar position, first, and this time it made him the individual conference champion. Owen Layton finished second overall and Christian Noble was third. “Our top three did what they’ve done all year. They go out, run even, and wear people out. They are relentless.” All three of those boys earned All-Conference Honors. Jack Leuer ran a great second half of the race to finish as the Hornets 4th runner in 21st place. This earns Jack Honorable Mention All-Conference. David Guyse had his best race of the year to finish in 27th place. “Half way through the race, team-score wise, we were in a bit of trouble. Jack and David both moved up and got us the places we needed.” Spencer Vold, Jayden McLearen, and Carter Erickson went 34, 35, 42 respectively. “The whole team has worked so hard and everyone fought hard to the finish today.” In the end the boys scored 54 points to finish in front of Monticello by one point. “It was a long wait until we finally got the scores. All of the coaches are so proud of the effort this entire team has shown this year.” This is the first conference title for the boys since 2001 when Big Lake was still in the CMC.
