Knoxville runs in Newton

The Knoxville boys and girls cross country teams raced in Newton Tuesday night. The boys’ team scores are as follows: Grinnell 38, Oskaloosa 53, Marshalltown 97, Newton 107, Knoxville 131, West Marshall 143 and DM Christian 148.

Brad Shearer was the top finisher for the Panthers running an 18:49, Brendan Finan was the second Knoxville finisher in 19:08. The rest of the varsity boys finished within 28 seconds of Finan.

All of the boys placed near the top half of the race. Shearer came in 18th, Finan in 25th, McNeill in 28th, Hollingshead in 29th, Lee in 31st, Reichert in 32nd and McDonald in 33rd.

“The boys got off to a slow start tonight but made up some ground throughout the race,” Coach Mike Moats said. “Some of our seniors stepped up and lead the way tonight, but the overall performance was a little below what we were hoping for.”

The Lady Panthers had a great night with all five of the Knoxville runners improving their season best times. The most improved runner for the evening was Emily Murphy, coming in at 21:09, which is almost seven minutes faster than her first race of the season.

Haley Ullestad also showed significant improvement cutting a couple of minutes off her season best time. Tori Johnston, Kaeline Schuenke and Courtney Hughs dropped their times as well, but not nearly as drastically.

“It is exciting to see that we have five ladies running with the heart it takes to be a varsity Panther. (At) our next meet, at PCM, we will finally have a team to enter in the varsity competition,” Moats added.

The JV boys placed third behind Oskaloosa and Grinnell edging out Marshalltown by a slim 10 point margin. The top finishers were Daniel Mallory, Colton Rinehart, Dylan Schuenke, Skyler Schlotterback and Chase Brown.

“Dylan was the most improved boy this evening cutting over one minute off of his season best time,” Moats added. “It was fun to watch him race tonight. He is such a great kid and an inspiration to the team. This is his first year running cross country and he is catching on very quickly.”

The team raced Thursday in Monroe at the golf course.
