Franklin County girls, Oldenburg boys win tri meet

Varsity Cross Country at Franklin County- Tuesday, September 3

Girls- Franklin County 22, Oldenburg and Seton Catholic inc.

Boys- Oldenburg 25, Franklin County 30, Seton Catholic inc.

Franklin County coach Stacey Nobbe: Despite warm temperatures, the Wildcat girls ran well on their home course. Junior Lauren Kelley was the top female finisher with a time of 22:29.  Since boys and girls ran at the same time, Lauren saw how she compared to her male counter parts. She finished 12th out of a field of 29 male and female runners.

Senior Katelyn Meyer, was our second fastest female, finishing third in the girls’ race.  Even though the ladies ran on their home course, it was a new route from prior years. They were able to run tough, keep a consistent pace and finish strong.

The Franklin County boys finished second to Oldenburg by 5 points.  The Twisters took the first three spots, but Franklin County took 4th through 8th place. It just wasn’t enough to close the gap.

Sophomore Ben Maze, the top runner for the Franklin County boys, placed 4th with a time of 20:30. Junior Drew Grant was right behind him in 5th place with a time of 20:35. Senior Harvey Marshall and freshman Hunter Marshall ran really close splits for the first two miles, but Hunter pulled away in the third mile and claimed the 6th spot. HIs time of 21:12 was 14 seconds faster than Harvey’s 7th place finish. The Franklin County boys ran a great race and placed well overall.

Oldenburg information will be added when received.
