The Chanticleer girls team came away with a 3" place finish in the meet with 76 points. Ainsworth and Broken Bow tied for first with 33 points with Ainsworth awarded the victory based on the tie breaking criteria. "I was pretty happy that our girls were able to finish in the top three", Coach Derry Trampe said. "We were one runner short due to injury and I was pleased that we were still able to hold off the rest of the field. We had a couple of girls that were fighting Some nagging injuries that stepped up and finished for the team." Gloria LoBue did not run due to an ankle injury. Rounding out the team scoring were: West Holt (78), Ravenna (82), Arcadia-Loup City (83), Amherst (105), Wood River (128), Sandhills/Thedford (141), and Ansley-Litchfield, Burwell, Centura, St. Edward, Twin Loup, Central Valley, and Gibbon did not field enough runners to score as a team.
In the boys' race the Chants scored 82 points to finish fifth in a close team race for second through sixth. Ainsworth ran away with the meet with a low score of 17 points. "I thought our boys ran well despite the conditions, Coach Trampe commented, "However, we really need to close the gap between our top runner and our next five runners. We had over a minute and a half between our first and second runner. In order for us to finish out the season on a positive note, we will need that gap to close and bring our team total down. We are running well as a group with our next five runners, we just need to move all of them up about a minute." Gibbon was a distant second in the team race with 67 points, Rounding out the team scores in the boys' race were: West Holt (72), Wood River (80), Centura (87), Broken Bow (114), Ravenna (123), Arcadia-Loup City (138).

Colton Rowse led the boys again this week with a seventh place finish in a time of 19:21 over the 5,000-meter course. The seventh place finish earned Rowse a medal in the individual standings, "Colton just gets better every meet", Trampe said. "He has medaled in all but one meet this season and that is a great accomplishment for a freshman with the schedule that we run." Also scoring for the Chants were Kyler Peetz (26" in 21:01), James Masin (27" in 21:07), and Christapher White (28" in 21:08). "It was great to have those three guys that close together in the final Standings", Coach Trampe noted. "If we can just get them about a minute faster and within 30 seconds of Colton, we would really bring our team score down and finish a lot higher in the team standings. That is what we need to work on the next three weeks heading into districts." Pushers for the team were Tim White (30" in 21:24) and Harrison Benton (35" in (21:38). "Tim had a really good race this week and it is nice to have him that close to our top four", Trampe Stated. "If we are in a tie breaker situation, that will be very important. Harrison has been nursing a Sore hip and it affected his performance in this meet. It looks like I will need to rest him for a week and see if we can have him ready for conference. When he is healthy, he will help bring our scores down." Also competing in the meet were Blake Moderow (43" in 22:21), Trevor Vancura (44" in 22:32), Riley Massman (59' in 24:03), and Scott Behnk (82" in : 30:56). "I know that the heat and high winds affected our times in this meet like they did everybody else that ran So it is really hard to compare this meet to our previous performances", the coach stated. "I felt good about the way these guys ran but I thought we could have finished the last mile of the race a little stronger."
In the individual Standings for the girls the Chants came away with two medal winners again this week, Zoe Ritz continued her strong season with a second place finish in 21:04 while her cousin Morgan Ritz finished 5" in 23:15 to earn medals.

I am really proud of both of them." Also scoring for the girls were Jessica Buckles and Rebecca Fischer, Buckles finished 40" in 28:28 and Fischer was 45" in 29:57. "Both Jessica and Rebecca are battling some nagging injuries but they have been able to work through them and finish races", Trampe stated. "They are mentally tough and have been willing to run with some pain in order to help the team out and I am really impressed with the toughness they are showing. Hopefully, we can get both of them a little rest this week and let them heat up for the finish to the season." The lone pusher for the team this week was Britan Blair. Britan finished in 60" place in a time of 38:18. "I am happy that Britan has been able to finish the last two races", Trampe said. "I know it is not easy for her but she is doing the best she can and I look for her times to come down in the next couple of races that we

"It was nice to have a couple extra junior high kids compete in this meet and give us a chance to score as a team", Trampe said, "Every year we let our junior high kids that are not out for cross country run in this meet if they want to. I think it is a great way for them to experience what the cross country kids do each week and give them an opportunity to find out what the sport is all about."
