The Ozaukee High School boys’ cross country team keeps flip-flopping with Big East Conference foe Sheboygan Lutheran when the two compete in the same invites.

Three meets ago, Lutheran topped the Warriors. Ozaukee finished ahead of the Crusaders at its home invite, and last week Lutheran edged the Warriors at its home meet.

Kohler won the 18-team Crusader Invite with 65 points, followed by Lutheran’s 107 and Ozaukee’s 109 last Saturday.

Owen Klaus finished second, running the 5,000-meter course in 17 minutes, 5 seconds. That was 14 seconds behind Kohler’s Davis Behler, and 20 seconds ahead of Kohler’s Ben Regennitter.

Warrior Aaron Nehls was eighth in a season-best 18:12. He and Klaus earned medals.

Chase Miller was 26th (25th toward the team score) in 18:59. Riley Borchardt was 39th (36th) in a season-best 19:41, and Brice Schueller was 41st (38th) in a season-best 19:47.

“I thought the boys competed well against a stacked field of teams. This was our largest meet of the season so far and they stepped up to the challenge,” coach Andrew Pfeuffer said.

“We have some things to work on in practice but overall they are heading in the right direction.”

Among the leaders of the pack

Pack running led the Warrior girls to third place behind two Big East foes.

Oostburg won with 56 points, followed by Reedsville’s 102. Ozaukee had 106.

Clara McKee led Ozaukee’s pack, finishing 14th in 22:30. Meredith Clark was next in 22:31, and Becky Hoffmann was right behind in 22:32. All three earned medals and ran season-best times.

Addison Schubert was 30th in a season-best 23:27, and Kenna Pierson was 34th in a season-best 23:49.

“With a large meet and a respectable course, our girls competed hard,” Pfeuffer said.

“We need to continue to push our packs up and keep chipping away at some of our tough conference opponents. But we took a step forward, and I’m excited to see how they compete next week at Mishicot.”

The Warriors run in the Bremser Invite on Thursday, Sept. 22.
