Is there anyone – or anything – that can stop the Boone Central girls?
So far, during the 2019 season, the answer has been no.
The Lady Cardinals continued an unbeaten season Thursday by winning the C-2 District championship at the Pierce Golf Course and qualifying for the NSAA 2019 State Championship at Kearney as one of the Class C favorites for a class title.
The Cardinals took the district crown in dominant fashion. Ranked #2 behind Scotus in the past two Nebraska Cross Country Coaches Association Top 10 polls, Boone Central defeated the runner-up Shamrocks for a fourth straight time in 2019. The 23-43 final tally was the largest winning margin in the head-to-head competitions.
Boone Central was paced by C-2 gold medalist Jordan Stopak, who won a stirring duel with Alexus Sindelar of Pierce by pulling away in the final stretch. Morgann Johnson claimed fifth place in dramatic and amazing fashion. After staggering out of line and stopping momentarily during the race with fatigue, the Cardinal sophomore regrouped, found her stride and kicked past runners to place fifth. Freshman Alicia Weeder returned to action after missing the Mid-State Conference competition and earned 10th place, and junior Autumn Simons completed the team score with a 12th place performance.
The Boone Central boys also had some inspired performances, as junior Bradley Schindel returned from a recent injury problem and took fourth place, while soph Harrison Dodds earned state qualification with a 12th place run. Ben (26th) and Caleb (30th) Kohl rounded out a fifth-place team score.
