Cardinal girls cross country champs again

Two times out, two times on top.
The Boone Central Lady Cardinals followed up their team championship in the season-opening Boone Central Invitational by dominating the competition at Friday’s Norfolk Catholic Invite at Skyview Lake.
Boone Central – with three top 10 runners and four in the top fifteen – recorded a team score of 19 and finished 16 points ahead of runnerup Bloomfield (35).
“I thought the girls did a great job top to bottom and was very pleased with the results,” praised Card Coach Justin Harris. “Alicia (Weeder), Morgann (Johnson) and Autumn (Simons) are doing a good job running together and working with each other in the first part of races.
“Nineteen points in a meet with 19 schools – 14 girls teams – is very impressive.”
Jordan Stopak impressively paced the Cardinals once again, placing second in a time of 21:05.68. Weeder (21:48.28) took fifth place, Johnson (21:55.96) sixth and Simons (22:34.19) 13th. Boone Central also had good depth, as Tessa Hamling (24:43.68) ran 27th and Kyra Kruse (24:59.92) 32nd.
In the boys competition, Card junior Bradley Schindel shined, placing fourth in a time of 17:45.47.

Boone Central placed eighth in the team standings, with Harrison Dodds (41, 20:02.56), Caleb Kohl (42, 20:03.50) and Ben Kohl (53, 20:45.24) rounding out the Cards’ 130 points. Will Grape (21:38.79) finished 69th. Osmond was the boys champion with 61 points.
“Bradley ran a great race and really ran strong through the hills in the last mile,” Harris said. “Caleb and Harrison both ran really well. I thought the freshmen and new boys on the team did a great job running the course for the first time.”
