From Coach Atwood:
The White Cloud Cross Country teams competed at their first 2020 CSAA jamboree on Wednesday in Hesperia. The tough course didn't keep Nathan Ciolk down, as he won the boys race in 19:33.52. The boys team finished in second place with help from Tristan McHaney ( 20:18.42, 5th), Kobe Canning (20:38.39, 7th), Terry Trendel (22:25.21, 15th), and Jaden VanDam (22:33.05, 16th). Rounding out the boys results for White Cloud was Nik Parks (18th), Carson Foondle (19th), Christian Ringler (23rd), Malachi Graves (24th), Sam Venema (29th), Ashton Byle (31st), Christian Moomey (37th), Keagan Kailing (40th), Ian Pierce (42nd), Zane Keith ( 43rd), Adam Bulk (44th), and Parker Karnes (45th). Congratulations to Jaden, Christian M, and Keagan for setting personal best times.
The girls narrowly missed a 3rd place finish by two points. Naomi Thompson (24:57.41) was our top finisher in sixth place. She was followed by Annie Feldpausch (26:48.57, 16th), Stine Kristensen (27:23.78, 17th), Grace Richards (28th), Chloe Higgs (32nd), Cecelia Rodriguez (33rd), Allie Rodriguez (34th), Lillie Keith (35th), and posting a season best was Sydnee Ochs (36th).
Nice job, runners! White Cloud will be in action at West Shore Community College on Saturday for the Ludington invitational.
