That’s what domination looks like.
The Boone Central girls cross country team, unbeaten in competitions since 2018, basically ran away from all challengers while capturing team and individual gold honors in the Boone Central Individual Invitational at the Albion Country Club.
The Cardinals certainly appeared to be approaching postseason peak form in terrific weather conditions Friday, with their four scoring runners placing in the top six.
Senior Jordan Stopak broke away from sophomore teammate Alicia Weeder late to win gold in a time of 20:14.50 over the 5000K layout. Weeder was second in 20:17.24, senior Sam Weeder (20:53.37) placed fifth and junior Morgann Johnson (20:54.10) sixth.
The Card contingent was so strong that senior Autumn Simons (22:26.43), who medaled in 11th place, was not even counted for the Boone Central team score.
No teams could come close to matching that paltry total of 14. Scotus placed second with 31 points, followed by O’Neill (50) and Wisner-Pilger (70).
Boone Central’s boys also had a successful day, finishing fourth in the team standings with 86 points. Scotus (28) won the boys event, trailed by St. Paul (44) and O’Neill (79).
Senior Bradley Schindel (17:43.97) led the Cardinals, placing 10th. Harrison Dodds (18:26.36) was 20th, and Caleb Kohl (34th, 19:18.18) and Richard Cleveland (36th, 19:18.82) rounded out the Boone Central team score.
