  • Despite a 45-minute lightning delay and very poor weather, the Neosho cross country team braved the elements and finished the Laker Invitational hosted by Camdenton High School at Ha Ha Tonka State Park on Saturday.
    Neosho’s girls took fifth out of 26 competing schools overall.
    Despite a slimy, muddy track, both Sydnie Anderson and Amber Bates medaled for the Lady Wildcats. Anderson finished in eighth place with a time of 22:03, while Bates, running for just the second time this season after an injury, was 16th in 21:50. Other results for the Lady Wildcats were: 21, Regan Rogers 22:03; 32, Ann Vernon 22:38; 51, Katelyn Lowe, 24:24; 68, Kalena Hansen 26:34; 71, Morganne Bishop 29:10.
    Neosho’s boys finished 12th out of 28 schools, led by medalist Chance Burr who took sixth with a time of 16:59. Other results for the boys were: 23, Carter Hickman 17:44; 41, Cole Bishop 18:19; 53, Kobi Miller 18:39; 86, Joby Paul 19:46; 91, Adam England 20:05; 92, Tyler Burr 20:07.
    “The girls were in the hunt from the start,” Wildcats coach Tom Thorne said. “Our two seniors continue to lead, and the five freshmen are making great strides to become good team runners. Kalena and Morgan are improving each week with both having personal bests each week.
    “The boys team ran really well and executed the race plan as planned,” he added. “Even though Thomas Vernon, a regular top-5 runner, did not compete due to illness. Chance Burr ran a faster time than his 2012 sectional time on the same course, even in muddy conditions. Chance went to the front and ran with some of the best in the state. The rest of the team ran closely together, and Carter Hickman had a more aggressive race. Kobi ran strong and Cole continues to improve.”
    Neosho will be back in action at the Carl Junction Invitational at Carl Junction High School on Thursday at 4 p.m
