Wynford Cross Country

Cross Country Runners Tear It Up at County Meet.

By: Sara Hoffman, Galion, Ohio

Wynford runners ran very well on the 17th of september at the Amman’s Reservoir in Galion, Ohio. The high school boys ran at 4:30 in very hot conditions but they pushed through it and came out runners up at the county meet. Mark Pfeifer lead the team finishing 6th with a time of 17:50. Freshman Donnie Brooks came in 11th with a time of 18:37 and senior Jacob Hord followed him with a time of 18:41. Still staying high in the placing were Michael Shupp finishing 19th with a 19:36 and placing 5th for the Royals was Matt Hall finishing 23rd with a time of 19:44. The boys were very proud of all their times and coming in 2nd in the county was a great accomplishment for the team.
The high school girls followed the boys race. The Royals still stayed strong as Ellie Richmond was the county winner for girls with a time of 20:55.  That was her best time so far this year. Freshman Madi Schiefer was only a few spots behind her taking 4th with a time of 21:39. Other Wynford runners finishing in the top 20 were Rachel Redolf (24:02, 17th overall) Sara Hoffman (24:34, 20th overall). The high school girls placed 3rd out of 6 teams. Anyone finishing in the top 20 in high school races are medalist.
Our boys junior high team placed 3rd also with Seth Karcher taking 9th, Josh Rose 10th, Tim Chandler 16th, Noah Smith 17th, Kyle Koon 18th, and rounding out the team was Ryan Stevely finishing 25th.
The last race of the evening was the junior high girls.  Shay Miller took 1st place in the junior high event and all Wynford runners improved on their times.  The Wynford Cross Country team will be back in action next Saturday the 28th at Buckeye Central starting at 9 a.m.
