| Both the boys and girls cross country teams
easily bested Madison in their second dual meet of the season 17–40
for the boys and 15–45 for the girls. A cross country race is
mathematically locked by the team that places its first three runners
across the finish in front of the first runner from the opposing team.
The Islanders locked both races. Jake Ruzevick, Brad Munns and Ryan
Haig led the way for the boys followed by Jack Harms (5th), Blake Gorey
(6th), Alton Smith (10th), Reid McLean (11th), Judd Lyons (15th) and
Andrew Cox (20th). Ruzevick’s time over the Morley Field 3.1 mile
course was 16:57. The girls were one runner away from a cross country
“skunk” (top 7 finishers) with the top 6 finishers. Katherine
Wingert was first across the line over the 2.75 mile girls course in
18:46 followed by Beth Wittry, Ashley Walsh, Dayna Queisser, Karoline
Ivarsson, Marissa Nagler and Katy Gomrick (12th).
