Boonville High School’s Cross Country team traveled to Oak Grove on September 12. All of the team’s returning runners beat their time from this meet last year by at least 1 to 7 minutes.
Holly Krumm led the girls with a final time of 23 minutes and 13 seconds, that time putting her in position 11 out of 54 entries. Grace Schupp finished in 28:34, Savannah Burnett in 29:11, Rebecca Gramlich in 30:09, Patience Dorman in 30:11, and Kayla Cotten in 30:12.
The boys were paraded by Rory Concannon, finishing position 4 out of 92 entries, completing the course in 18 minutes, 48 seconds. Jason Broyhill crossed the line in 21:26, Brian Hagen in 23:03, Joel Concannon in 23:08, and Zac Ruffalo in 23:28.
Coach Emily Allsop said, “Oak Grove is a difficult course, and our runners did an excellent job of maintaining their goal pace and finishing in their goal time. We did not place as a team, but we are earning some personal best times and we are off to a great start as we prepare for the Fulton meet next Saturday.”
The Cross Country team takes to the trail again on Saturday, September 21 at Fulton.
