B-E Runners Compete in OTC Invite

By Craig Olson - Henning, MN

The Brandon-Evansville Chargers ran the OTC Cross Country Invite in cold, wet, windy conditions in Henning on Tuesday.

“Overall, I was pleased with the results and believe the next two weeks should prove the team has worked hard all year,” reported Head Coach Robert Bosma.

Caitlyn Deschene was the top varsity finisher for B-E, taking thirteenth place with a time of 23:33.15. Christina Kuismi (27:02.81), Maeve Huisman (27:02.81) and Kerryn Lund (29:03.0) finished 36th through 38th for the Chargers. In the junior high race, Kiatta Korkowski took eighth place with a time of 17:07.63 over the 3200 meter course.

“Caitlyn Deschene ran a strong race even though it was a wet course with many hills,” said Coach Bosma. “She seems to always run her fastest times when the courses are hillier and she was not far off setting another PR. Maeve and Christina ran well together and pushed each other for most of the race. Kerryn also ran well last night. In the junior high race, Kiatta had another strong finish challenging runners at the end. I look forward to what she can do for our team in the coming years.”

Wes Siira was the leader for the B-E boys, taking tenth place with a time of 19:09.18. Abram Fossell was sixteenth (19:53.73), Logan Froemming 24th (20:33.23) and Blake Merritt 32nd (21:18.59).

“In the boys' race, Wes continued to lead our pack,” noted Coach Bosma. “He attacked each hill and used his long stride to gain a significant advantage going down each of them. Abram also attacked each hill but wasn't running as comfortable as he normally does. With running three meets in four days, he was heavy and that showed last night. Logan and Blake again used each other for support and keep pushing to get to the next pack through the race. For some runners, this was our third meet in four days. We ran in Wheaton on Saturday, the 7-9 grade runners were at the conference meet on Monday, and then last night. Many of the runners felt heavy and pushed through soreness. They are looking forward to recovering this week and getting ready for conference in Wadena next Tuesday.”
