“I wanted Morgan Powers to run under 20:30 and she did that perfectly,” Coach Kramer said.
Maggy Yockey finished in 70th, just 30 seconds behind Powers (20:40).
“Maggy Yockey ran one of her best races of the year, actually,” Coach Kramer said. “She said she really liked the course.”
In the JV race, freshman Hunter Plummer led the six Rams, placing 13th out of 94 runners (19:43) and Erik Bowers followed in 28th (18:20).
“This was the last meet for most of our JV runners, so I had them go hard even though they were tired from conference,” Coach Kramer said. “I am very happy with how they have come on here at the end of the year. They are really starting to understand about pacing and actually did a great job of it today. A lot of them struggled the last mile only because they were still tired and sore from conference. We have a lot of potential in the JV squad that will have to step up next year. I hope they are up to the challenge. I think they will be.”
