Today the Eagle Cross Country teams traveled to Spring Hill Camp in Evart to compete in the 28 team Evart Invitational. All teams competed in one race but were separated by small school and large school divisions.

The boys team finished 3rd in the small school division and 6th overall. Medaling for the Eagles were Deegan Bodell (14th), Carter Clark (15th), and Brayden Clark (18th). Rounding out the top 7 were Oisin O’Grady (32nd), Kristian Coon (34th), Jacob Stevens (39th) and Cole Halfman (44th) Hayden Jason (61st), and Aiden Weber (71st) also had good races for the Eagles.

The girls team finished 11th of 13 schools in the small school division. Mary Beth Hyatt finished 31st, followed by Emma McCarty (41st) and Lily Martin (57th).

“Everyone competed very well today. The course was the toughest they will face all year and they all raced well on a tough course. The boys did well against the 7th ranked team in the state and were the 2nd D4 school out of 28 schools who competed. The girls also competed well and both teams are gearing up for the first MSAC meet this coming Wednesday.”

Next meet for the Eagles is on Wednesday, September 21st, Lake of Dreams campground in Merrill.
