Boys Cross Country outpaces rivals

By on September 9, 2010

ELBURN—On Tuesday, the Knights cross-country team built a nice block toward eventual success this season.

They built it on the strength of their feet.

Hosting Yorkville and East Aurora at Elburn Woods, the Knights’ 24 points outdid the efforts of the Foxes (58) and East Aurora (78).

“It’s very early in our campaign, but we like what we see, and hopefully our depth will begin to shine as the calendar switches to October,” KHS coach Chad Clarey said.

The charge was led by Trevor Holm with a 16 minute, 43 second time. Teammate Clayton Brundige finished third at 17:49. Nate Rehkopf, with a 17:51 mark, finished fifth and Kaneland’s John Meisinger took seventh at 18:20.

Kaneland travels to Peoria Woodruff for an invite on Saturday, Sept. 11.
