Finishing up the regular meet season, Mifflin County Boys’ Cross Country played host to visiting Juniata and Williamsport. In double dual action MC defeated Juniata 29-30 but fell to Williamsport 27-29.  

Wyatt Stroup from Juniata captured individual honors in 16:44.  For the Huskies , Caden Bell finished third overall in 17:00.  Other MC scorers were Reese Cubbison 8th (17:54), Styers Oden 9th (17:59), Koy Aurand 11th (18:02) and Aidan Scavitti 12th (18:04).  Pushers Cody Fultz 13th (18:16)and Hoyt Rodenbaugh 15th (18:20)completed the Husky seven. Also finishing for Miff Co was Hart Oden 16th (18:44), Camryn Treaster 23rd (20:14), Logan Breneman 24th (20:23), David Synder 29th (22:26) and Nathan Goss 30th (25:26).

“Looking at earlier season results we knew that Juniata had some pretty fast kids up front. If we could get a scorer or two in the mix our mid and back pack could keep us in the hunt then finish the job for us.  Our pack stuck together for the first two miles before spreading out over the last mile. Our 1-5 split was 1:04 but our pushers Cody and Hoyt are what was key to the win. “

“Against Williamsport it was a good match up. Our gap between 1-2 was a little too big and Williamsport took advantage. We beat them up front and in the back but had trouble in the middle. It was a close race.  Our boys are starting to realize they can run and compete with good teams.”

“Coming off Saturday’s Mid Penn Championship we had two extra days to get ready. We were rested and ready to race.   Caden, Koy, Aidan, Styers, Hoyt and David all PR-ed in the day’s effort.  Caden was a 1/4 second from going under 17 minutes and is set up nicely for Districts.  Koy had hit a plateau for a couple races but had a breakout race with a 50 second PR.  This was Aidan’s 4th PR in his last four races. His October has been amazing. Styers had a couple set backs during the season but he never gave up or gave in. His perseverance paid off today. Hoyt missed a lot of the early season but since his comeback he continues to improve. Today’s PR was by about 30 seconds and put him on the All Time Fastest Husky Roster. David is getting stronger and faster. A first year freshman he is looking better and better.”

The Huskies finish up at 4-5 overall and 3-4 in the Mid Penn. They compete next at the District 6 Championship on October 28th in Reedsville.
