NCMS Cross Country Team Competes in Hiawatha

By: Ella Larkin

    It was a beautiful day at the golf course in Hiawatha where a cross country meet was held. The teams gathered together on Thursday, September 14 to compete against each other in a two mile race around the Hiawatha Golf Course. The teams the Nemaha Central Middle school went up against were not easy teams either so it was a stressful day for the runners.  Those teams competing at the meet with NCMS were Silver Lake, Hiawatha, Holton, Atchison County, Falls City, and Pawnee City.

    Out of the NCMS runners Elena Gonzalez was the only girl running and she placed 7th out of 11 girls with a time of 18:17. The boy’s meet was quite a bit bigger with 31 runners. Isaac Lueger with a time of 17:13 placed 12th.  Brandon Rogers and Jack Holthaus went in a line with Brandon placing 17th (18:28) and Jack 18th (19:17). Owen Carpenter placed 22nd with a finishing time of 20:51. With a decent outcome, the NC Thunder head back to get ready for their home meet.

     "It was hot, humid, and there were lots of hills making the course tough," said Jack Holthaus.
