Area Cross-Country

Gillett Girls/Coleman

Boys Earn M&O

Conference Titles


Gillett's girls and Coleman's boys won conference titles at the M&O Conference meet on Thursday.

The Gillett girls were led by Carleigh Kaczmarek and Angela Mosconi, who finished second and third of 27 runners, respectively, with times of 21 minutes, 22.9 seconds and 21 minutes, 34.1 seconds.

Suring's Olivia Noack won the race with a time of 20:52.1. Suring was second as a team, with Georgia Gerndt also taking fourth (22:42.9) individually.

The remainder of Gillett's finishers were Kasey Hansen in ninth (23:46.3), Laney DeBauch in 10th (23.48.1), 11th-place Cheyenne Krueger (23:56.4), Alaina Herzog in 13th (24:37.1), Lily Hansen taking 14th (24:53.5) and Amber Brehmer in 18th (25:59.9). "I'm very proud of the girls' determination of defending their conference title. It was one of the team's goals from the beginning of the season," said Gillett head coach Bill DeJung.

Noack and Gerndt made the conference's first team, as the top five individuals made the first team. Hansen and DeBauch were on the second team, made up of runners six through 10.

Gillett's average time among its qualifying scores was 22:53. Suring's was 24:32.

Suring's Chantelle Vandenelzen was 15th (25:02.5), Hailey Thomson took 16th (25:15.3) and Samantha Seibert came in 25th (28:49.3).

In the boys race, Gillett had the top two finishers, with Alex Peterson and Evan Peterson taking first and second with times of 17:19 and 17:58.5. Both made the M&O Conference first team.

Crivitz was third as a team, led by Sam Lieuwen, who came in third overall (19:01.5). Ben Brown placed sixth (20:03.9), Joey Pickett was 14th (21:26.9), Jacob Behrendt placed 16th (21:58.1) and Brock Banaszak came in 26th (29:21.2).

Oneida Nation had two runners as well. Raymond Ackley took 15th (21:57.1) and Landon House took 24th (25:30).

The race was run at Crandon High School. The runners ran at the same time as the runners from the Northern Lakes Conference but were scored separately.



Peshtigo's Pesch Takes

Packerland Gold,

Nelson Brings

Home Silver


Peshtigo had two of the top three individual finishers in the Packerland Boys Cross Country Championship and the top individual finisher in the girls race on Thursday.

The boys ran first on the course at Gibraltar High School in Fish Creek. As the runners hit the one-mile mark, the leaders were still pretty close together, but after two miles, runners began to spread out, with Kewaunee's Cameron Cullen in the lead followed by Peshtigo's Andrew Nelson and Logan Smith. This is how the top three would finish the race.

Cameron Cullen was first of 31 runners with a time of 17 minutes, 24.21 seconds. Finishing just after Cullen were second-place Nelson (17:41.91) and third-place Smith (17:57.05).

On his race day strategy, Nelson said, "I just tried to mentally stay in it. Keep a good stride. I did a better job at the end of the race not allowing my stride to get lazy and it helped me today."

The top seven finishers make first team Packerland all-conference. Spots 8-14 are second team and 15-21 are honorable mention.

Peshtigo's only other runner was Cole Grabian, meaning the Bulldogs did not have the five runners necessary for a full team score. Grabian was 17th (20:15.46), making honorable mention in the conference.

"Cole worked hard," Peshtigo coach Derek Smith said. "He keeps looking stronger as the season progresses."

Oconto did have the five runners required for a team score, and the Blue Devils were second of three schools that qualified. Kewaunee was first and Sturgeon Bay took third.

For Oconto, Josh Maynard was seventh (18:42.95), Kadin Baxter was eighth (18:57.07), Jackson Martin was 15th (20:00.58), Bryton Fuller placed 19th (20:49.31), Daniel Alswin came in 21st (21:10.16) and Braden Shallow took 27th (21:58.8).

Maynard made the Packerland first team, Baxter was a second-teamer and Martin earned an honorable mention.

Peshtigo's Holly Pesch won the girls race with a time of 20 minutes, 14.54 seconds.

The top five runners were close together at the mile mark, but Pesch pulled away shortly after and cruised over the finish line 24 seconds before any other runner in the race.

"I knew I had an opportunity to be near the front," Pesch, a freshman, said after the race. "Once I saw the lead runner, I knew I could be there."

After Sevastopol's Bea Dramm in second, Sydney Lund came in third of 44 runners with a 21-minute, 3.6-second time.

Arikka Carroll took 13th (23:30.41), Alaina Archambault was 20th (24:18.21) and Beverly Bloch placed 32nd (25:43.83).

Bloch ran a gutsy race. She started the season late and has been battling injuries. Pesch and Lund earned first team all conference honors. Archambault made honorable mention and Carroll was a second-teamer in the Packerland.

"I didn't expect to be here after the first two weeks," Carroll said. "I'm glad I stuck with it. Looking forward to sectionals."

Peshtigo was third as a girls team. This was the first time all season the Bulldogs have had a full five-runner team.

"I'm so proud of the girls. They went out there as a team and ran like a team," coach Smith said. "They all had the same goal, and that was to compete for the team title. It didn't go our way, but I saw some of our best today."

Despite coming up short of their goal to win the title, the Bulldogs are holding their heads high.

"I thought we had a great team effort. I liked it," Lund said. "Our team ran for each other, so there's nothing to be disappointed about."

Oconto was fourth as a team.

For Oconto, Addisyn Viestenz took sixth (21:38.88), Betsy Finger was 19th (24:07.01), Ellie Finger (24:51.75) was 24th, Hannah Thomson took 25th (25:01.1), Josie Mireles came in 26th (25.11.25) and Maggie Sohrweide finished 31st (25:35.79).

Viestenz made the Packerland first team and Finger made honorable mention.

Sevastopol and Sturgeon Bay were first and second in the girls standings. Kewaunee and Southern Door were fifth and sixth.

Sectionals will be held Oct. 22 and 23, with Peshtigo running on Oct. 23 at the Patriot Golf Course in Oconto Falls.

Menominee's Brandt

Finishes Fourth

at GNC Meet


As they've done all year, Marquette's cross country runners dominated yet again at the Great Northern Conference Championship on Thursday.

Marquette had six of the top seven runners in the boys race and six of the top 10 in the girls race.

Menominee's boys were fourth of four qualifying teams on Thursday.

Marquette, Gladstone and Escanaba were the top three teams in the boys standings.

The top 11 consisted of seven Marquette runners, along with three from Gladstone and one from Escanaba.

Menominee's top finisher was Brock Murphy, who took 12th of 28 runners (19:58.2). Daniel Birch was 17th (21:15.7), Aden Short took 19th (21:27.4), Dawson Allgeyer was 20th (21:51.2) and Ethan Howarth came in 23rd (22:21).

Menominee didn't have enough girls to qualify for a team score, but Attica Brandt was fourth of 28 runners with a time of 22:19 and Mikalah Mead took 23rd (26:55.1). They were the only two Maroons in the race.

The top four teams in the race, in order, were Marquette, Gladstone, Escanaba and Kingsford.



Stabley Leads

Goodman-Pembine

at Northern Lakes Meet


Goodman-Pembine's Kody Stahley was second at the Northern Lakes Conference Meet on Thursday.

Stahley finished the 5,000-meter race in 19 minutes, 36 seconds, second of 16 runners. Crandon's Taylor Karcz pulled away from the field to finish in 17:31.70.

G-P's Kevin Strietzel was fourth (20:18.7), Caleb Meissner took sixth (20:42.7) and Josh Knutson came in 15th (27:46.2).

Crandon and Laona/Wabeno were first and second, respectively, in the girls race. They were the only two complete teams.

Goodman-Pembine's only runner in the girls race was Joley Berger, who took sixth of 18 with a 24:04 time.
