Mifflin County Boys’Cross Country made a good showing Saturday morning placing third overall in a 19 team field. 27 high schools were represented with 141 athletes finishing the 5000 meter foot race. Tyler Rader from Huntingdon won the race in 16:55with Altoona capturing the team title.

The Husky pack was lead by Reese Cubbison 4th (17:40) and Caden Bell 5th (17:47).  Wyatt Kauffman placed 18th (18:31) with Hart Oden 30th and Cody Fultz 31st (both in 19:03).

Aidan Scavitti 53rd (19:58) and Styers Oden 56th (20:05) closed out the Husky seven.

“This was a good race for us. The boys went out from the start and established a good team position. About halfway through the course there is a pretty challenging uphill.  The boys navigated it then improved their finish rank.

Reese looked tough. Caden ran his best race so far this season.  Wyatt was solid. Hart had a nice performance and Cody locked up 3rd for us. Aidan had a nice varsity debut. Styers struggled but still had a top 50 finish in team scoring.

Several had been dealing with with colds and I was a little concerned with how they might do today. The starters gun answered that as they immediately got into the mix. They raced hard and we had the top four bring home medals. We had a good day.”

The Husky JV squad placed 4th being lead by medal winning Camryn Treaster 9th (20:52 and Logan Breneman 13th (21:08).  Also racing for Miff Co was Justin Cox 39th (24:37), David Snyder 45th (24:51) and Nathan Goss 59th (26:41)

“The JV’s are dropping time and gaining experience in each race they run. They have a bright future”.
