Meet Recap

The Wayland Wildcats hosted the OK Gold Jamboree tonight and snuck in both races despite the weather! The greatest compliment of the night came from one of the other coaches who said, “We really enjoyed running on a TRUE CROSS COUNTRY COURSE!” The first quarter mile is up hill and can take the wind out of your sails if you’re not prepared to “recover” on the fly. The boys continue to work hard and finished 6th tonight ahead of Wyoming and right behind South Christian. Freshman, Mitchell Hooker had a fantastic break-out night and putting himself in the mix near the front and finished 1st for Wayland in a time of 18:20. Hot on his heels was Captain Jonathan Zuiderveen. He finished with 20 points in a time of 18:28. Ethan Killips, Captain, had a great night running a time of 19:37. Sophomore Jarod Geerligs ran tough, finishing with a time of 20:50. A tight pack of Russell, Kloska, Jelsema, and Atrruia finished within 14 seconds of each other. Ian put in a very gritty performance tonight. Jacob found out what it was like to finish a race after taking a tumble on the course tonight. He’s going to feel it tomorrow. I was very proud of his efforts. Steven Mosher finished the course in a time of 22:32 while Jacob Radmacher came very close to running a lifetime PR missing it by only a few seconds, finishing in a time of 23:28. It was an exciting day to race, especially after the clouds let loose with a downpour. The rainbow over the finish line was a nice touch!
