After running into a road block earlier in the week, Mifflin County Boys’ Cross Country got back on track at the Gettysburg Invitational
Saturday morning. The Huskies placed 8th in the 28 team field.

Reese Cubbison was first for the locals in 23rd (17:13).  Caden Bell followed in 34th (17:26) with Wyatt Kauffman 60th (18:01), Cody Fultz 64th (18:07), Aidan Scavitti 83rd (18:24), Styers Oden 97th (18:35) with brother Hart 99th (18:35) and Koy Aurand >7 (18:47).  

Ari Snyder took first in 15:56 leading Chambersburg to the team title.

“The Varsity ran well.  Anytime a team can get their 1 to 5 gap to less than a minute good things can happen,” said Loht. “We were 1:11.  Not quite a minute but still good enough to boost the team’s overall place.”

“The boys came ready to race. Thursday and Friday we went pretty light to get some life back into their legs. They arrived with renewed energy.”

“The top 25 finishers received medals in the varsity race. Reese got out to a good start then finished hard to take one home. Caden has been running races in the low 17:00’s and added another one to his resume. He is poised for a big one. Wyatt got faster each mile and stronger as the race went on. He is exciting to watch. Cody ran even splits the first two miles then had a tremendous finish.  Aidan PR-ed the second time this week, dropping 30 seconds with today’s effort. Styers and Hart have been pushing and pulling each other most of season. They’re getting the job done in our pusher positions.  Koy started a bit hot today but still hung on for a nice race and a PR.  Koy is smart and will learn from this experience.  He has a lot still in the tank.”

In the JV race, MC finished 13 out of a 21 team field. Hoyt Rodenbaugh took 12th (18:47) teaming up with Camryn Treaster 60th (19:49), Logan Breneman 79th (20:06), David Snyder 190th (23:26) and Nathan Goss 203rd (24:26). “ The jv’s had a good day. Hoyt won a medal for placing in the top 15.  All of them PR-ed. All but Nathan are freshmen. They are gaining valuable experience each meet and learning how to race. It’s been fun watching them progress.”

“We just finished a month of two races per week. The kids showed a lot of resilience, bouncing back to finish in the top ten. This week we will prepare for next Saturday’sMid Penn Championship.”
