Carviou/Konitzer Lead Area State Runners

McDonough, Trimberger, Kremsreiter, Casper all Post Solid State Performances

Area runners took a ride to Wisconsin Rapids last Saturday Oct. 29 to compete in the annual WIAA State Cross Country Championships.

Lacing up the running shoes from the area were Coleman's Miles Kremsreiter and Kasey Casper in Division 3. Peshtigo's Cole Trimberger joined the Division 2 boys while the Bulldog's Mariah McDonough and Marinette's Kim Carviou put in their 5000 meters in the Division two girls competition. The Oconto Falls boys team which qualified for the division two field which included Evan Konitzer, Noah Ludeman, Justin Konitzer, Brody Schindel, Evan Roberts, Aaron Kurth and Mitchell Barrett.

Out of the list of area runners it was O. Falls' Konitzer that posted the best finish, crossing the finish line with a time of 16:55.16, good enough to take 29th, overall 11th in team competition.

"I can't explain how awesome it feels," said Oconto Falls Head C.C. Coach Lon Ludemann. "I think time wise, or guys were ready for it. Mentally our guys came to run. We were here two years ago but we didn't really show up, not this year, these guys really showed up."

Cole Trimberger was second best in area division 2 runners with a time of 17:19.18. It was Trimberger's first year at the State C.C. meet, competing as a sophomore.

"At the start, the race just kind of condensed around me," said Peshtigo's Trimberger. "I had to fight through a lot of people to get to a more favorable position. There a few times during the race when a few guys were extremely close together and I had to push through them. There was one runner from Luxemberg-Casco that i battled all race, we passed each multiple times. It was a great race though."

With experience gained Trimberger is confident that next year he will return and hopefully improve.

"This was an eye opener," said Trimberger. "Now I know the course and can plan for next year."

An ecstatic Jim Stillman could not say enough about his two State athletes this year as well as his hopes for the Peshtigo C.C. teams future.

"This was a tough course," said Stillman. "I think Cole was between 80-90 in the first mile and finished 48th, so his race really opened up during the second and third mile which is great. What really paid off for Cole was getting to be there and catching "the bug', and now I think he realizes how much he has to up his summer training if he wants to join that upper echelon of guys next year."

O.Falls' Ludemann finished 72nd with a time of 17:45.45 while teammate Justin Konitzer finished 94th with a time of18:06.14. Schindel crossed the finish line in 18:12.98 for a 100th place finish. Roberts bagged 104th at 18:15.95. Kurth finished 133rd with a time of 19:00.46 while Barrett rounded off the O.Falls team with a time of 19:32.63 for a 146th place finish.

Division 2's champion was Xavier's Luke Bailey who posted a time of 15:44.80 to take the gold. Clark Otte of Sheboygan Falls took second at 15:56.46 while River Valley's Dustin Hatfield took the bronze with a time of 16:05.90.

Division three was won by Luther's David Vannucchi with a time of 15:59.33 followed by Valley Christian's Wesley Schiek with a time of 16:05.98. Darlington's Payton Heinberg was third with a time of 16:33.65.

Area runner Miles Kremsreiter gave his Coleman Cougars a great effort on the day with a time of 17:27.06, netting himself a 30th place finish.

"At the end if felt like had enough left to kick it into gear and pass a few people," said Coleman's Kremsreiter. "This course had a few more hills than most of the course I have run this year but it still treated me well."

Teammate Kasey Caper wasn't far behind, crossing the finish line in 17:36.50 for a 37th place finish, besting last season's 51st place finish which was rung in with a time of 17:54.17.

"It was hilly, but where we live there are plenty of hills so I should be used to it," said Coleman's Casper. "I just over did it the first mile. I went out 20 seconds to fast, I wanted to be around 5:35 and I was at 5:15. But after the two and half mark I was just dead."

In the beginning of the season Casper was held back due to injury.

"In the beginning of the year in August I had an injury," said Capser. "My knee blew up so I couldn't run that much, so it sort of held me back,As soon as I felt ok I started training as much as I could, I'd bike in the morning and run at night."

"I think they did great," said Coleman Head C.C. Coach Becky Chaltry. "They were around the middle of the pack at mile two and ended up moving up quite a bit. Both our boys did a great job this season and deserved to be here today."

Leading the area girls in Wisconsin Rapids was Marinette's Kim Carviou who posted a time of 19:54.14 to earn a 16th place finish in the Division 2 race. This year's time shows a markable improvement from last year where Carviou posted a mark of 20:53.66.

Also taking part in the same field was Peshtigo's Mariah McDonough who crossed the finish line in 20:13.75 to take 28th showing an improvement from last year's time of 20:29.74.

"Last year Mariah ran with her team," said Stillman. "This year she ran on her own. She moved from a 39th place finish last year to a 28th finish this year. She did a great job and did exactly what I asked her to do in the first mile, that being stay on Kim Carviou's shoulder. But I was so happy for Mariah, I thought she had an exemplary season."

McDonough, like many other athletes talked about the challenging nature of the course, especially in concerns to the hills.

"The weather was really nice, perfect for running. I was a bit nervous before the race because it was my last chance at state," said McDonough. "The course was pretty hilly, at one point of the race we were supposed to be on a flat stretch, but it got flooded so they redirected us up another hill. I felt really privileged to be there, worked so hard all season long to just get a chance to be here."
