Moulton girls, Skowronski advance to State


Out of the woods after the start, Cable had a healthy lead, followed by Skowronski leading a host of runners.

Out of the woods towards the finish, nothing had changed, as Cable finished 17 seconds ahead of the field (10:57), leading Rochester to a team 2nd place.

Then came a sprint between Skowronski and Carlinville’s Landon. They were side by side all the way to the finish line. The Skowronski leaned at the line, but the longer-legged Landon’s foot hit the line first and he was awarded 2nd place .24 seconds ahead of Skowronski in 3rd.

Owens followed 2+ seconds later to lead Williamsville to a state qualifying 3rd place.

Robinson’s first runner crossed in 6th place, but they packed the best of all the teams. Robinson had #6, #8, #12, #19, and #20 for 65 points.

Rochester’s top two were #1 and #5, but then there was a gap to #21, #23, #30, giving them 80 points and 2nd place.

Williamsville and Mt. Zion tied at 3rd place with 90 points. Mt. Zion had the second best pack of all the boys teams. They had #7, #13, #17, #25, and #28 for 90 points and had all five of their scorers finish ahead of Williamsville and 2nd place Rochester. Williamsville had #4, #10, #16, #27, #33 for 90 points.

Skowronski continued to lead a cadre of younger Ram runners who packed towards the back. Logan Weatherford (13:48) and Christian Sieger (13:49) came in together in 44th and 45th team places. Jordan Winnings (15:08) and Luke Brown (15:18) finished in team 49th and 50th, followed by Will Leach in team 52nd (17:01).

The 2A girls state race will be at Maxwell Park in Normal on Saturday, October 19 at 11 a.m., followed by the boys race at 11:45 a.m.
