The Mid-Prairie boys cross country team placed second at the Monticello Invite and Mid-Prairie continues to see their teams climb up as the season progresses.
Floyd Evans placed second at the meet with a 17:07 and according to Fleming that is a 68-second improvement over his time last year at Monticello.
While the boys dropped first place at the meet to Tipton, Fleming said he was happy that immediately after, the boys were game planning how they would improve.
“I was so encouraged that almost immediately after the race our guys were talking about how to improve and come back stronger next race, and I just love their resiliency and maturity. It really speaks well of them not just as athletes but also as young men.”
Marie Hostetler has her second meet win and this time increased the separation between her and her sister Anna Hostetler.
Marie Hostetler ran a 18:26 for the win while Anna Hostetler ran a 19:04 at the Monticello Invitational on Sept. 9.
The Mid-Prairie girls team as a whole took first place behind strong performances from freshman Ana Fleming, Abbagail Evans and Kate Cavanagh who placed in the top 15.
“Yesterday we had a team goal setting session for how much they wanted to improve at this meet, and nearly the whole squad -varsity and JV - met their goals today,” coach Aaron Fleming said. “That’s very satisfying for the runners, to see their times improving, and the whole team improvement is a great sign of how unified these girls are and how focused they are on supporting each other and winning as a team.”
