Girls finish fourth in Kent Ottawa Meet

The Cedar Springs girls cross country team took to the course at the Kent Ottawa County Meet held at Gainey Athletic Complex on Saturday, October 17. The girls finished 4th out of seven teams scoring 118 points. 

“This course is usually challenging and not always fast. No PRs for anyone but some of them were close and still ran good places,” said Coach Melinda Stressman.

Finishing first for the Red Hawks in a time of 21:23 was junior Ally Ladd (14th overall) who got up with the front packs and stuck with them, not letting them get too far ahead. Freshmen Kaitlynn Brown (22nd) and Hannah Reed (23rd) were next for the squad with both ladies working really good together at moving up and keeping their pace strong throughout the race. They finished 22:26 and 22:45 respectively. Senior Paige Marsman (32nd) ran very strong, maintaining a good pace, and pushing herself to earn a good spot and run the challenging course the best she could finishing in a time of 23:56. Freshman Reagan Viau (36th) was not far behind Marsman running strong and finished at 24:24. Junior Madison Golliver (46th) ran strong into the finish with a time of 25:56 and Mikayla Caruthers (51st) pushed herself finishing at 26:51.

“I’m so proud of our girls. We have entered championship week and I am so excited to see our teams tear it up on the courses this week! They’ve worked so hard and have accomplished so much this season already,” said Coach Melinda Stressman.

The varsity team will be competing in pre-regional action on their home course on Saturday, October 24, with the JV team traveling to Benzie Central High School for the Go Out On Top meet. Good luck ladies!
