September 28, 2016~Year 9, No. 9


Nazareth’s 14 cross country runners faced a rainy meet on Saturday, September 24th as they competed in the 1A division of the annual Lubbock Invitational.

The girls started off the meet in the beginning of the afternoon with their two mile course. The meet uses the same location as the regional meet, so the run was great practice for future competition. The Swiftettes were the first place team in the 1A division, and hopefully this win is a prediction of their potential success at the regional meet at the end of October. The individual results are as follows:

3rd – Caitlin Kleman

7th – Shania Schacher

11th – April Schmucker

22nd – Laci Backus

24th – Amy Schilderink

31st – Blakely Gerber

40th – Hallie Kleman

The Swifts followed the girls’ run with a different course lengthened to three miles for the 1A boys runners. The Swifts placed 6th overall as a team in the 1A division and their individual results are below:

10th – Brady Robb

29th – Slade Gerber

48th – Tristan McLain

56th – Tristan Nelson

70th – Mike Schilderink

76th – Brayden Dyer

77th – Tate Schulte
