Sophomore Kelley Large took sixth place in leading the Ozaukee High School girls’ cross country team to fifth of 19 teams in the Kiel Invite last Thursday.

The Warriors scored 125 points, just two points from the third-place host. Plymouth won with 39 points, followed by Oostburg’s 83 and Two Rivers’ 89.

Large ran the 4,000-meter course in 16 minutes, 40 seconds.

Grace Tinder took 25th in 17:50.

Amy Hoffmann was 28th in 17:57.

Ally Clark took 34th in 18:11 and Jenna Schueller was 35th in a personal-record 18:11.

"It was tough gauging splits and where they should fall as most meets now are 5K’s for girls. However, I think our girls responded well to the different course length and are looking forward to competing in a 5K again,” coach Andrew Pfeuffer said.

The girls took third with 99 points in the season-opening Two Rivers Invite on Aug. 23. Notre Dame won with 34, followed by Oostburg’s 89.

Large was 10th in 22:15 in the 5K course.

The Warrior boys scored 277 points to take 11th of 18 teams at the Kiel Invite.

The top four runners had personal records, and the fifth had a season-best time.

Valders won with 47 points.

Sophomore Sam Schubert was 20th in the 5K with an 18:39 and earned a medal. Hayden Rice was 28th in 19:10.

Tyler Mueller was 55th in 19:52. Matt Baldwin was 74th in 20:20. Mason Thill was 129th in 24:01.

They are really responding well to the training and learning a lot from racing,” Pfeuffer said.

The Warriors next run Tuesday, Sept. 11, at Sheboygan Lutheran.
