Marinette Girls/Coleman Boys Take Silver at Border Battle

Issue Date: September 23, 2021

Marquette dominated the Marinette Border Battle Cross Country Invite on Saturday.

Marinette hosted a number of teams from around northeastern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan, with the furthest north team finding themselves highest in the standings as well.

Marquette's girls occupied four of the top nine spots, while the boys were even more dominant, taking home the top four spots in the race, along with seven of the top 10 finishes.

Marinette's girls were second of six teams. The Coleman girls were third and Suring was fourth behind a first-place finish from Olivia Noack.

Noack paced the field of 47 runners with a time of 21:33. Also for Suring, Georgia Gerndt was 23rd (24:46.9), Hailey Thomson took 25th (25:20.9), Chantelle Vandenelzen was 32nd (26:31.2) and Samantha Seibert was 40th (28:53.3).

"I think they did well. I always think they always do well. I think they were a little disappointed, times weren't as fast, you've got the hills in there, but I think they're working hard," Suring coach Amanda Seibert said of her team. "Shawano last week, we're in Bonduel on Tuesday, so we're pushing it here."

For Marinette, Hadley Reines was the top finisher, taking sixth (22:22.6). Ava Dahlman was 10th (23:17), Molly Knutson took 12th (23:31.8), Madison Kunick took 15th (23:42.6), Addison Lacy took 21st (24:29.5) and Karissa Valitchka came in 24th (25:15.9).

"Ava had a great finish. All of our girls really did. They wanted to go into our home meet really just being in good position, which they did, but wouldn't be enough to tackle Marquette," Marinette coach Jenni Campbell said. "It's a great course for the athletes, especially being able to go back into the woods for about half the race and then just some wide open spaces, really. It is good for their training to have a little bit more technicality and some hill work, but just as much area is flat."

Coleman's girls took third. Desiree Nowak took 11th (23:26.1), Corrin Liptak was 13th (23:37.4), Kiersten Jensen was 17th (23:54.3), Sara Seefeldt placed 33rd (26:59.1), Paige Nowak took 37th (28:00) and Sylvia Fochesato came in 44th (30:09.1).

Coleman's boys took second of seven teams, led by ninth-place Karson Casper, who finished in 18 minutes, 43.8 seconds.

Alex Rennie was 11th of 48 runners (18:54.4), Isaiah Nowak took 18th (19:45.4), John Nowak was 19th (19:59.2), Tyler Rennie placed 21st (20:04), Pete Bruette took 25th (20:50.5) and Ray Lemieux was 38th (22:03.8).

"The kids ran a great race on a tough course," Coleman coach Becky Chaltry said. "I was exceptionally proud, as this meet was close to home and lots of families were able to attend. All of our runners are doing great this season. I can't wait to see where we are come mid-October."

Menominee's boys took seventh as a team. Brock Murphy was 31st (21:10.4), Daniel Birch took 34th (21:12), Aden Short was 39th (22:07.8), Ethan Howarth was 43rd (24:16.6) and Evan Casey was 44th (25:02.6).

The Menominee girls did not qualify for a full team score. Hayden Buck took fourth in the individual field (22:16.3), Attica Brandt was fifth (22:20.9) and Mikakah Mead took 27th (26:00.4).

Other schools with runners in the races included Escanaba, Munising, Wrightstown, Stephenson and Holy Name Catholic.



Bulldogs Compete at

Smiley Invite in Wausau


The Peshtigo Bulldogs took on more than 30 teams from around the state at the Smiley Invite in Wausau over the weekend.

Of 135 Division 2 and 3 runners, Peshtigo's Logan Smith was 13th to pace the Bulldog boys (17:44.6). Andrew Nelson finished 18th (17:51.8) and Cole Grabian took 90th (20:14.5).

West Salem and Little Chute paced the Division 2 teams. Peshtigo did not qualify for a team score.

Of 131 runners, Holly Pesch took 11th with a time of 20:55.8. Sydney Lund came in 16th (21:04), Arikka Carroll came in 66th (23:29.2) and Alaina Archambault was 87th (24:48.8).

Carroll and Archambault improved their times by two and four minutes, respectively, Peshtigo coach Derek Smith said.

"It was amazing to see the huge improvement by these girls, both first-year cross country runners," Smith said. "Everyone improved this week. We had a great week of preparation for this hilly course."
