    Nemaha Central Middle School Cross Country team runs it up at home on Thursday, September 21. They fought contenders from three different schools: Hiawatha, Washington County, and Atchison County. The NCMS girls ran hard and Elena Gonzalez finished in second place with a time of 16:04. Running in her first meet of the season, Henriette Yemba finished ninth place with a time of 21:31. There were 10 girls running in the middle school competition.

    “Cross country is fun, the course was two miles and it was really big. It was hard and I was tired,” said Henriette Yemba.

    The NCMS boys did their best all finishing in the top 10. Brandon Rogers finished seventh with a time of 16:20. Just behind Brandon was Jack Holthaus finishing eighth with a time of 17:37. Following close behind was Owen Carpenter finishing with a time of 19:51 to take tenth place.

    Nemaha Central hosted a Fun Run at the golf course for kids who wanted to test their cross country skills. The top three girls were Keirsten Washington finishing first with a time of 3:10, Ashlyn Gudenkauf second place crossing at a time of 3:19, and third place went to Maggie Koch with a time of 3:24. The top three boys were first place finisher, Kaleb Ames with a time of 3:00 and 2nd place was Brady Koch finishing with a time of 3:00 also with just a few tenths of a second separating their times, and finishing in third place was Kaden Peterson with a time of 3:05.

    The cross country team has the week off from meets and will practice up for the final weeks of the season.
