Marine Boys Claim Home Invite Crown

Issue Date: September 20, 2018

Kitzinger/Polomis Take Home Individual Titles

Marinette fared well at its home "Border Battle" Cross Country Invite on Saturday.

The Marinette boys won the seven-team meet, which started behind the soccer fields, looped behind the new rec center and spent a lot of time on narrow trails through the woods.

Marine senior Carson Polomis won the 66-runner race by 16 seconds with a time of 18:16. He said he didn't go in with any elaborate strategy, though the narrow trails of the woods had some impact on how people ran.

"I just kind of went out and tried to run my race," he said. "Obviously on the narrow trails, you're not going to be able to pass a lot of people. I think it adds a lot to the effect of the race to be on the narrow, winding trails."

Senior teammate Jacob Michaels was third (18:52). He said it was important for him to get out ahead early, and not just because of the narrow passing areas in the woods.

"If I go out and I'm ahead I feel confident so I run more," Michaels said. "If I get passed and there's a lot of people ahead of me, I just get down and kind of think negatively and then I don't go as fast as I could."

Junior Matt Maye was fourth (19:02). Senior Tyler Fayta came in 10th (20:06). Freshman Cody Cohan was 27th (21:21) and senior Quinn Golueke was 37th (22:30).

Marinette coach Jenni Campbell said the upperclassmen on the team make it easy to practice due to their leadership.

"Our upperclassmen really are leading the way for our boys. Our leaders really come on strong. Those guys know what they're doing, they have experience and they run smart races," she said. "They are great leaders, great kids in school, they're super smart, they lead by example and they work hard."

Polomis, for example, waits at the finish line after every race until everyone has wrapped up, helping exhausted runners off the ground and congratulating others.

"Carson is always standing at the finish line, even until the last runner comes through," Campbell said. "He makes everyone better."

Marinette's girls were third of eight teams, led by the fastest girl runner in the race, Katelyn Kitzinger. The Marinette junior topped the 64-runner field by 32 seconds with a time of 22:07.

Kitzinger said running in the woods was "a little different," but said she liked it. She got out to an early lead, despite the heat, and cruised to a victory.

"That was part of our strategy, just to get out hard so they have good placement going into the first loop which is a single track, so they knew they had to get out hard and be in good position going into that first loop," Campbell said. "I expected that from Kaitlyn today. Again, she felt like times were a little slower, but she's already talking about next week."

Marinette races in Oshkosh on Saturday. After the race, Kitzinger did mention next week's races, as times figure to improve with less heat and humidity.

"I think next week is going to be the real test. It's at Oshkosh, which is our biggest meet of the year," Kitzinger said after the race. "Right now, we're just training through it and getting ready for those bigger meets."

Freshman Molly Knutson, who Campbell said "really stepped up," took 13th (24:09). Sam Pieper was 16th (24:37), Hadley Reines was 29th (25:59), Alli Kacalo took 41st (27:09) and Ava Dahlman was 42nd (27:16).

With the race on the narrow woods track with the humidity, Marinette and other teams' times were a bit slower than normal, making for a "more technical race," Campbell said.

"We decided to go into the trails and stay in the trails longer for our high school race to make it a little more enjoyable for the high schoolers, which doesn't make for as much of a spectator-friendly course, but it's better for the kids," she said.

After Wrightstown's boys, the Menominee boys were second. Landen Clausen was sixth in the field (19:11), Hunter Shepeck was seventh (19:20) and Braeden Park was 20th (21:04). Evan Casey placed 31st (22:05), Nick Sandahl came in 39th (22:32), Adam Sandahl was 42nd (22:35) and Brody Waara took 58th (25:25).

Menominee's girls took second in the race, behind only Wrightstown. Katie Anderla was fourth overall with a 23-minute finish. Hayden Buck was eighth (23:22), Jaida Lesperance took 18th (24:49), Abby Bradfield took 20th (25:07), Marin Park was 23rd (25:23) and Amber Poquette crossed in 59th (31:00).

Coleman's boys took fourth as a team, led by Kasey Casper's second-place finish. (18:32). Casper was not a fan of the course, noting an early bottleneck after two Marinette runners got out ahead and he couldn't get around to pass.

"I did not like the single track. It's too narrow and I can't get my right positions," he said. "I got cut off in the beginning by two Marinette kids, so I got bottled up there. It's very hard to get by people in the woods."

Casper said he tried to keep within about a 30 to 40-yard range of Polomis during the race.

"At the beginning he was about 100, but then I closed the gap at the end and I was very happy with my performance today," Casper said.

Behind Casper, Koltin Grzybowski was 16th (20:48), Billy Ganter was 30th (22:00), Sam King took 34th (22:24) and Seth Seefeldt was 38th (22:32).

The Coleman girls took fifth behind Kingsford. Junior Faith King led the Cougars across the line with a ninth-place finish (23:39).

"It's pretty warm out, but I'm happy with what I did with the hills and running through the woods on uneven ground," King said after the race. "Strong finish: That's all that's important."

Sara Seefeldt was 19th (24:50), Molly Seefeldt took 34th (26:24), Ember DeWitt was 35th (26:37), Megan Seefeldt came in 46th (27:56), Mariah Payette was 48th (28:15) and Mariah Mursau was 50th (28:38).

Suring did not have a full team, but Ryann Wagner ran well to take second in the field (22:39). Count Wagner as one runner who liked the wooded race.

"I liked it. I liked running through the woods. It was really hot, so I didn't run my best time today, but I enjoyed it," she said, noting that the shade in the woods did help to feel less hot. "It's a little cooler in the woods, so it's a little nicer out in the woods. I kind of tried to not think about it and catch the girl in front of me."

Suring's Maddy Vandecelde was 26th (25:47) and Ava Hill was 56th (29:43). Jayden Geniesse was the only Eagle boy in the race, taking 15th of 66 (20:39).

Lena was another school that had runners but didn't qualify for a team score. For the Wildcat girls, Megan Shallow took 38th (26:56), Kennedy Marquardt was 43rd (27:22), Ciara Urbanek was 44th (27:32) and Samara Vanark took 63rd (34:48).

Cody Dellise led the Lena boys across the line in 24th (21:08), Max Beyer was 57th (25:16), Noah Chang took 62nd (28:21) and Kiko Cajigas was 64th (29:46).

Wausaukee had two runners in the girls' race. Madelyn Schlies took 12th (24:07) and Kalynn Schlies was 22nd (25:13).

In the boys' race, Peyton Betts took 48th for Wausaukee (23:28). David Forst was 53rd (24:19) and Danny Gottbeheut was 60th (26:53).

Three Upper Peninsula teams rounded out the team rankings, with Marquette, Stephenson and Escanaba in sixth, seventh and eighth in the girls' race, respectively.

Escanaba, Stephenson and Marquette were fifth, sixth and seventh in the boys' race.

North Central, Norway and Oneida Nation also had runners at the race.
