The Cedar Grove-Belgium boys’ cross country team survived a muddy course at the Tiger Invite in Chilton last Friday, with a couple of runners losing their shoes.

But the Rockets took second of nine teams, scoring 86 points to defending Division 2 champion Valders’ 21.

Quinn Hoopman led the way by running the 5,000-meter course in 18 minutes, 30.16 seconds and earned a medal.

The Rockets next went 17-18-19-20. Elliot Depies ran an 18:56.35. Bryce Ketterhagen ran an 18:57.92. Ben Fleuchaus ran a 19:00.87. Logan Ketterhagen ran a 19:07.36.

“Our 2-5 runners have been very tightly grouped the last couple of meets. That mentality will serve us well if we can maintain it,” coach Branden Langer said.

The girls took third with 86 points, behind Valders’ 76 and Luxemburg-Casco’s 77.

Karen Ibarra took third in 22:11.68.

Grace Voskuil was 12th in 23:06.06. Lyndsay Sass was 22nd in 24:17.09. Jacy Zajac was 26th in 24:49.3. Katie Mueller was 27th in 24:53.51.

Langer said the girls ran a better first mile but still held back a little too much.

“It is a work in progress, but I liked the way both teams competed, particularly during the last mile. There is still room for improvement, but I think we are on the right path,” he said.

The Rockets next run in a Racine St. Catherine’s invite at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside.
