On To State

On a day better suited for a duck, the coyotes slogged their way to a pair of second place plaques and now move on to the State Championships on Halloween.

The ladies ran first, and were paced by 4 all-region performances from Audrey Lookner, Hailey Leader, Liz Hogan, and Emily Hoffmann. Audrey led the ladies with her 3rd place finishing time of 19:15.  The only runners to finish in front of Audrey were last year’s 2nd & 3rd place finishers from the State Meet. Hailey was next in 7th, followed by Liz in 12th, and Emily in 15th. Brooke Forsythe was the fifth and final scorer for the coyotes with her 19th place finish. Alden Gruidel,  Daisy Fuchs, and Sam Wexler all finished together in 25th, 26th, and 28th place finishes. Abby Hein rounded out the ‘yotes with her 37th place finish. On a day the Coyotes didn’t have the services of top runner, Holly Bent, their second place finish was impressive!

The boys were also paced by 4 all-region performers in Isaac Green, Ben Hogan, Charlie Perry, and Zach Litoff. Isaac was the overall winner of the race in a time of 16:41. Ben and Charlie followed in 4th and 5th, and Zach was 9th. Greg Hibl was the fifth and final scorer for the coyotes in 18th place finish. Jack Herrmann and Isaac Russo were the 6th and 7th runners for the coyotes with their 27th and 32nd place respective finishes. Declan Stone-Murphy and Brandon Wallace rounded out the coyotes in 40th and 42nd. The guys team finished 2nd with 37 points to Boulders incredible score of 26.

On deck…the State Meet on October 31st.
