Swede girls run to 3rd place at Bow
Shorthanded boys team takes seventh
Recovery has been the biggest issue in the young season for the girls cross country team.
With that said, the Swedes finished third overall with four girls medaling in the Broken Bow Invite Saturday.Reeves said that the girls bunched up really well and credits that to the team’s overall third place finish.
“We still have some girls out and when they get back, everyone should move up individually,” Reeves said.
Jaci Teahon led the team with a 12th place finish at 21:52, followed closely by Jennifer Maline in 13th, Destiny McVay in 14th and Sydney Gruber in 15th. Just 19 seconds separated these four medalists.
Molly Sughroue from McCook finished first.
On the boys side, the Swedes took seventh place at Broken Bow, paced by Collin Hahn just missing the top 5.
“We didn’t have a full squad for the invite, but when we do, the team will be solid,” Reeves said.
He added that the kids are still getting experience running in these races. They are trying to see what works for them and what they should improve on.
The Swedes compete in the Fillmore Central Invite Thursday at 5 p.m.
