Coldwater Lions Invitational
Thursday afternoon, October 3 a select group of Runnin' Bulldogs made the short trip to Coldwater for participation in the annual Coldwater Lions Invitational. Twenty-five schools took part in the highly competitive meet, which included many of the state's top Division III schools, with a couple of state ranked D-II teams.
Celina's Runnin' Women finished 14th in the team standings. Lauren McDonough (22:23), who fell/crawled numerous times during the final 200m, due to exhaustion, led the way with her 72nd place finish of the 267 competitors. Jenna Coon was next for CHS at 82nd, in 22:37. Beth Garwood (101, 22:59), Breah Anderson (116, 23:29), and Sarah Daniel (124, 23:43) comprised the scoring five. Autumn Brehm ran a season best 23:45, just two seconds off her career best, as she crossed 125th. Daisha Elliott (128, 23:52), Audriana Adams (24:33), and Nicole Crites (164, 24:54) also represented the Green and White.
The Guys placed 20th in their division standings. Nick Marks (19:19) was number one for the Dogs, crossing the line in 92nd place of the 275 runners. John Hoenie (109, 19:38) followed Nick. Dylan Gibbons (142, 20:12), Nathan Robinson (148, 20:30), and Aaron Crites (160, 20:40) joined Nick and John as part of the scoring quintet. Luke Bowsher was sixth for the Bulldogs (184, 21:17) with Nathan Higgins failing to finish.
