There were no weather excuses on Saturday as the Sabre Cross Country team traveled to Willmar for a 10 team invitational on a cool mostly sunny afternoon. Racing provides its own challenges each and ever time to runners but on this day illness and injury made team success more difficult to accomplish. In fact several runners were unable to compete at all while a handful of others did they best despite not feeling their best. That still didn’t stop the varsity squad from finishing 3rd in a strong field featuring several state ranked teams and some large metro schools. Mady Dockendorf stepped up and did her part racing a career best time and finishing 16th overall. Ashley Nelson and Emily Bakken both had time drops from last years race on this same course to solidify the middle of our scoring group. While Ingrid Buiceag-Arama had a season best time as our top finisher in 6th place. The JV team finished in 5th place and were lead by season best times from Kenzie Arnold and Lydia Anderson. Sartell’s results are attached and full meet results can be found at gopherstateevents.com. Next up is the Lions Meet of Champions Saturday, Oct 5th @ Arrowwood Resort in Alexandria.
