Wildcat Varsity cross country runner Derek Shrader finished with a time of 20:28 at the Baertschi Invitational in Albany.

The Baertschi Invitational in Albany has proven to be one of our favorite meets. This year, conditions were damp but the rain held off until the races were over.

The Wildcats had two boys within two and three spots of medaling. Julian Fullbright led with boys with a time of 19:48, followed by a strong run from Caden O'Rourke (19:52). Rounding out the rest of Varsity were Derek Shrader (20:28), Sean Campbell (20:32), Gary Salmela (20:46) and Alan Woller (21:56). The boys placed 6th of 11 teams in the small school division.

Our Junior Varsity boys also ran well - Brandon Graves finished in a time of 24:31, and Jacob Kean finished in 26:22.

The girl's team ran strong races as well. Kalin O'Rourke was our number one runner, finishing in 25:25, followed by Eve Palmer (26:19), Alexis Walker (26:55), Angelina Parisot (27:07), Heidi Wegehaupt (27:11), Gianna Diaz (27:47) and Michelle Ayala (28:24). The girl's team placed 9th of 10.

Junior Varsity girls were led by Emma Veeneman finishing in 30:06, followed by Rachel Markhardt (31:42) and Maya Severson (33:54).

Next week is our Conference Meet at Lake Mills High School! Good luck Wildcats!
