Ovid-Elsie Cross Country News Release

September 10, 2015

The Ovid- Elsie Cross Country program hosted the 13th Annual Marauder Invitational on Wednesday September 9th at Uncle Johns Cider Mill in St. Johns, Michigan which saw 843 runners compete in five races. The event was a huge success and has turned into one of the area’s largest high schools cross country race.

The Lady Marauders finished fourth overall out of ten complete teams which saw the majority of the team run their best race of the season. Senior Clare Sheedlo once again paced the team by finishing 19th overall with a time of 22:52. She was followed by Senior Addison Hymer, Junior Katy Hurst, Senior Emma Phillipson and Junior Karissa Seagers to round out the scoring for the team. Coach Ekel stated that he was pleased with the results but insists there is still a lot of work to be done to meet the teams’ goals for the season.

The men’s team finished fifth overall out of eleven complete teams. Senior Gage Cleveland finished 29 seconds behind Beal City’s Ethan Schafer to finish third overall with a time of 17:32.8. He was followed by Senior Dakota Pfeiffer in 9th, Freshmen Weston Kvalevog, Senior Isaiah Medina and Freshmen Noah Willaford. Both Cleveland and Pfeiffer earned medals for their performance in the race. Coach Ekel feels the team is starting to take shape and is making strides to return to the State Meet at Michigan International Speedway in November to improve on their 14th place finish.

The Marauders have a busy week coming up with the team traveling to Chesaning on Tuesday to compete in the first of three league meets in the Tri-Valley Central Division and Michigan State University on Friday to compete in the Spartan Invitational.
