Cross Country Runners Finish Strong at Smithville
West Platte Fall Sports 2017
It was a warm and windy day September day as the West Platte Blue Jays traveled to Smithville Lake for the annual Smithville Invitational CC meet. While the individual times were not very exciting, the overall placing and team score for the boys team was very encouraging.
With the Jays again running against a large number of class 2 and 3 schools, the boys team was able to put together a solid enough performance to finish in third place overall. They defeated 11 other schools and trailed only Smithville and Liberty North in the final standings.
Max Davies led the Jays with a 2nd place finish in a time of 18:18. Phillip Pattison and Andy Cicha ran 2nd and 3rd for the Jays, finishing 14th and 17th respectively.
Justin Howard and Drake Stelljes were the 4th and 5th runners for the Jays finishing in 48th and 60th place. These two runners were the key to the Jays success as they dropped their place finishes by almost 20 apiece over their run last Thursday at Platte County.
Zac Howerton and Matik Heskin ran well also, finishing very close to Drake in the standings. Coy Taylor ran in the JV race and finished 53rd out of over 125 runners.
For the Lady Jays, Lexi Elmore ran another solid race finishing in 5th place behind runners from Smithville, Lawson, and Liberty North.
Sophia Rush continued her excellent rookie season finishing in the 12th spot out of 66 participants running behind 10 class 3-4 runners.
The top 20 runners in both races received medals and the 5 medals picked up by West Platte runners this time were the most since at least 2012.
The Jays next race is at Horton on Sept 28th.
