In an interesting event for the traveling Red Storm team the meet was split up in an unexpected way. The Redstorm girls 6th & 7th graders raced first for a shorter race distance of 2K (1.24 miles) and resulted in Plymouth taking first versus Kelsing and also winning vs. Boston. Katelyn Carothers ran a hard, strong race and finished first with Tia Freshour 15 seconds behind for 5th place overall. The Redstorm boys 6th & 7th graders also ran a 2K distance and won vs. Kelsing but lost to Boston. 7th grader Shane Pursch was first for Lincoln and 3rd overall; second place for Lincoln was 6th grader Daniel Stauffer who finished 5th overall. The only normal 3K distance was reserved for the 8th grade boys and girls race, running separate as normal. The Plymouth 8th grade boys team lost to Kelsing but Plymouth vs. Boston resulted in a Redstorm win. Standout performance by Jordan Morrow who set a new personal record time of 11:57, other hard efforts by Plymouth crew of Micah Calhoun, Chris Noodwang, Isias Frias and an awesome and new “PR” by Alex Rostron.
The Plymouth 8th grade girls team defeated both schools with a perfect score. The team was powerful with a sweep of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th places contribute by Rachel Crawford, Kendall Grove, Katie McCormick, Emme Listenberger, & Janelle Cleveland. Alexis Aistrop only 15 seconds behind and setting a new “PR” of 15:10.
