Cross Country competes in Bob Schul Invite


WEST MILTON — The Wayne cross country team competed at the Bob Schul Invite on Saturday, held at Milton Union High School.

The Warriors finished 15th on the boys side and 18th for the girls out of the 24 teams that competed.

The boys had a solid pack of varsity runners who finished only 35 seconds between the first and seventh runner. Junior Vincent Statzer led the team with a 19:20, followed by Cole Williamson (19:36), Danny Cole (19:37), Noah McGeorge (19:41), William Stephens (19:46), Adam Larman (19:52) and Rohan Storaci (19:55).

“Having the top seven runners so close together is what every team wants,” said Wayne Coach Todd Anderson. “Now that pack just has to work together to get faster, which will happen as the season progresses. I’m quite happy with how good they are working together.”

On the girls side, the team was led by junior Madelynn Cochren who ran the 5k in 25:33 followed closely behind by Abigail Kerestes (25:42), Bailey Koss (27:11), Kristen Hoelscher (27:51) and Zamarys Ramirez (28:04).

“The girls ran a lot more competitive this week than last week and it shows with their times. We still have some work to do but we have many more meets left this season,” Anderson stated. “Overall all 25 runners on the team improved their time from the week before and are continuing to train hard which will continue to drop our times.”

The cross country team will continue their season at the Miamisburg Invitational on Saturday, held at Medlar View Elementary school.
