Okoboji Co-Head Coach Erin Frerichs:

Okoboji Girls are meet Champions, scoring 36 points.  Tonight was a very big confidence boost for our girls as we head into the Conference Meet and the State Qualifying Meet in the next two weeks.  Of the 9 girls that ran (both JV and Varsity), 4 set new all time personal records and 4 ran season best times.  We ran a 2-3-4 finish, with Olivia Albright leading the Pioneers with a 2nd place finish.  Mallory Gibson and Mari Stein rounded out the top 5.  It was a total team effort tonight to beat Sioux Center as all the varsity runners medaled.  Anna Seeger was 14th, Cory Hoffman placed 19th, Ali Goehring came in 20th, and Grace Goehring medaled at 24th place.  We are excited to see the girls peaking at exactly the right time of the season.  Abi Meyer and Peace Preston also placed 2nd and 4th in the JV race.

The Okoboji boys finished in 4th place tonight, led by the 4-5 finish of Blake Lineweaver and Ryan Chindlund.  We are also very excited to see the boys running the fastest times of the season and careers.  Three runners set career personal bests tonight and 5 guys ran season records.  Just like the girls, this was a confidence builder for our guys tonight.  Connery Sweeney ran a great race and Isaac Fritsch, Isaac Golke, and Joseph Schmidt continue to improve each and every time we race.  Adam Dublinske cramped up tonight, but still ran within 30 seconds of his career fastest time. Thor Heimdal and Austin Duncan set season bests in the JV race and Josh Kujanson also improves from race to race.  
  
With two races in 48 hours, the kids are looking foward to some recovery time and enjoying the Homecoming activities on Friday.  We are excited to see all the hard work our runners have put in pay off in the next two weeks.
