James Kearney and Chloe Schaulis had top ten finishes during the EMC Tournament on Wednesday, October 9, at Boys Town.

In a very strong field that included several of the top runners in the state, Kearney won a 7th place medal with a time of 17:08.

Chloe Schaulis ran a time of 20:52 and won a 8th place medal in a race that included several top 10 runners in Class A and B. Schaulis defeated four runners she has never beaten in the past.

“Chloe and James are both among the top runners in the state and have a great chance to qualify for State next week at districts,” Coach Ron Schaulis said.

Alex Rico, 19:08; Hayden Beccard, 19:37; Eli Davis, 19:46; Jesse Rodriguez, 19:58; Colton Clark, 20:50.

“Our youth was evident today as most of the leaders were upperclassmen and just a little stronger and more experienced than us, even though some met our goals for the day,” Schaulis said. “It was a great field for both the girls and boys and maybe the toughest conference in the state.”
