Criss Cross Apple Sauce. Linda and I like to read to each other. A lot. She recited the top qualifiers for this Friday’s Nebraska State XC Champs. Muy interesante!
Class A boys, Millard West’s Seth Hirsch’s 15:02 puts him head and shoulders above. Class B boys, Jackson Larsen, Omaha Gross- 16:02.24. Class C boys, Aidan Wheelock of Minden (16:47). In Class C-4 is my personal favorite , Jack Lindgren of Ogallala (17:00), we’ve never met but hope to remedy that Friday. Class D is led by Elijah Frasher of Aquinas in 16:33. All class gold goes to young master Hirsch.
The girls are bunched considerably closer. Top Class A are Taylor Sommers of Millard South (19:05), and Anna Jennings of Papio South (19:07). Class B led by Maize Larsen (Gretna, 18:48) and Whitney Riesen off Scottsbluff (18:54). Class C’s Christina Soto-Stopak of Boone Central/Newman Grove 19:25 showing the way there. Class D best represented by Cameron Hucke of Hastings St. Cecilia state qualifying leader of 18:47. All class gold should be a real donnybrook between the returning All Class champ (Somers), defending class B champ (Larsen) and my dark horse surprise pick, the altitude trained Riesen.
Looking forward to getting to know Jack.
Pete is now 5 miles from Pennsylvania and a mere 280 from his destination in NYC. 4 more days until history is re-written. Run Pete Run!
