STERLING—With a personal best on the Rock River Run course at Hoover Park in Sterling, all Knight athlete Trevor Holm could say was, “My teammates think it’s gross.”

Nobody was recoiling after the effort on Saturday, however.

With a time of 15 minutes, 32 seconds, the senior bested his course time by 40 seconds.

“I just tried to stick with Belvidere (North),” Holm said. “I guess it worked out for me. I didn’t want to let them go. Coming into the race I think five of them were ranked higher than me and only two of them beat me today.”

For Kaneland, 148 points was good enough for fourth place overall, edging Dixon’s 152-point total.

Belvidere North (28), Geneva (73) and Normal West (97) earned the top three places.

Blue Thunder entry Paul Zeman, with a time of 15:16 , won the course. For Kaneland, Holm’s fifth-place effort, was followed next by 30th place Clayton Brundige with a time of 16:48. Next on the Knights docket was Nate Rehkopf in 32nd with a time of 16:49, and Conor Johnson finished in 35th at 16:54.

The Knight crew faces the Freeport Invite for its next challenge on Saturday, Oct. 2, at 9:30 a.m.
