MS XC runs competes at Addision Invitational

The middle school XC team competed Saturday at the Addison Invitational. The 5th and 6th graders ran 1.6 miles and the 7th and 8th graders ran 2.4 miles. 
Stand outs included Madison Natschke, who took 2nd overall in her race. Gezahegn Starr placed first overall in the 5/6 boys race. Quinn Natschke placed first overall in the girls 5/6 race and Lake Buseth placed 1st overall in the 7/8 boys race. 
 The 7/8 boys team took first as a team and were led by Lake Buseth, Jared Clark, and Tyler Robertson. The girls 7/8 team took 2nd behind Concord. The girls team was led by Madison Natschke, Noel Nagy, Sophie Debacker, Jackie Rosecrants and Grace Buckland.
Interestingly enough a tree in the woods fell down and almost hit a few of our 6th grade runners (not kidding) and someone (not from our team) decide to play with a hornets nest, so the 7th and 8th grade runners ended up running 2.4 miles instead of 2.  The race had to be diverted to avoid the hornets.
