Rebuilding is the name of the game for the Laingsburg boys cross country team this fall, while the girls’ squad is looking ahead to a bright future.
The Wolfpack cross country team took part in the Chesaning Invitational that was held at Showboat Park.  The boys’ team finished ninth with a team score of 243.
“Our boys’ team is in a rebuilding phase, as we have four freshmen out on the team,” said head coach Mal Balow.  “That being said, we have a great summer program, and I couldn’t be happier with how things are going.  Both the boys’ and girls’ programs are looking outstanding.”
The Laingsburg boys are led by a pair of talented runners this season.
“Right now Zachary Little and Logan Stahl have been my one and two guys, but they are all running pretty good for this time in the season,“ Balow said. “As some of them get a little experience and a few more races in them, I think we will be looking even better.” Coming in first for the Wolfpack was Little with a time of 17:56.6.  Adam Stewart finished in second with a time of 19:30.9, followed by Stahl at 20:09.0, Alex Sperry at 20:25.0, and Justin Morles at 21:55.6.
The girls finished 14th overall at Chesaning with a team score of 353.
Leading the Lady Wolves was Madeline Johnson with a time of 23:55.3.  She was followed by Emily Garner at 24:00.5, Tarra Boris at 27:41.0, Amber Rockwell at 28:25.3, Hannah Garner at 28:42.3, and Erin Wilson at 31:58.5.
Laingsburg might be in a rebuilding phase, but the middle school girls’ team has a few runners already making people take notice.
“We have a couple of girls in the middle school that are already running high school times, and over the next six years it’s really looking good for us as a program,” Balow said.
