Boys cross takes blue championship at Sparta

The Red Hawk boys cross country team took the Blue Division championship at the Sparta Invitational.

The Cedar Springs Boys Cross Country team kept rolling with their winning streak at the Sparta Cross Country Invite on Saturday, September 15. The team went 1-3-4-8-9 for a score of 25 followed by Lowell with 37. The boys were the blue division champs bringing home a team trophy, several individual medals, and several lifetime personal records (PR) and season records (SR) for the day.  

Running for the Red Hawk Varsity were Corey Bowers (1st, 16:21, PR), Jaydon Moleski (3rd, 17:03), Dilan Sargent (4th, 17:04, SR), Gavin Braciak (8th, 17:38, SR), Austin Mann (9th, 17:40, PR), Carter Moleski (22nd, 18:15, PR), and Gabe White (51st, 19:34, PR).  

On the JV side of things, the boys placed 6th with a team score of 145. Cayden Steinebach led the Red Hawks (12th, 19:34, PR) followed by Alex Nylaan (24th, 19:56, PR), Caleb Menefee (40th, 20:27, PR), Sam Kleynenberg (49th, 20:37, SR), Justin Voskuil (53rd, 20:42, PR), Logan Douglas (61st, 20:57, PR), and Gabe Minnich (68th, 21:08).

“I was very pleased with how the boys competed in both the JV and Varsity races this weekend. We came away with many season PRs and medalists, and the boys team dominated up front in the varsity race. We are beginning to close the gap between our 1-5 runners so that is good to see as we move forward in the season.” said Coach Garrett Lacy.

“I’m beyond impressed with the girls. As a team, we really improved with how we competed. Our girls worked together wonderfully throughout the race and before it as well. These ladies have so much talent and are capable of doing great things ahead,” said Coach Melinda Stressman.

The Red Hawks will be running on their home course on Saturday, September 22, for the Cedar Springs Invitational.
