Emmetsburg won the team title with a score of 55 points and the runner-up team was South Central Calhoun was second with 61 points.  3rd place was Alta-Aurelia with 97 points and Manson was 4th with 100 points.

Robert Jepsen (28th, 20:33) was the third Jaguar to cross the finish line behind Coledon and Ben with freshman Zach Thompson (35th, 20:58) next.  Running a season best time of 21:07 was Isaiah Gibbs (37th), followed by Carson Suchan (46th, 21:58) and Dalton Dencklau (50th, 22:23).

The seven varsity runners combined for 111 points which was good enough for 4th place.  Sioux Central was this year’s boys’ team champion with 60 points, followed by Pocahontas with 68 points and Manson NW with 99 points.  

In JV action, both the Southeast Valley girls’ and boys’ teams were team champions.  Jayden Gardipee, 3rd place overall, ran a season best of 27:12 to lead the Jaguars. Viatris Scott (6th, 28:51), Taegan Long (8th, 31:45) and Christine Housken (9th, 31:46) were the next three to finish.  Senior Chelsea Grossnickle finished her career on Saturday with a season best time of 33:58 for 10th in the JV race.

Freshman Caleb Kaltschnee ran a season best of 21:41 to pace the boys’ JV team with a 4th place finish.  Fellow freshman Asa Haub was nine seconds behind Caleb in 21:50 to claim 5th. Parker Johnson was 7th (23:01) followed Blake Peterson was 9th (23:13).  Ross Halligan was the 5th scorer for the Jaguars running 24:54 for 17th. Four of the top 8 times for the Jaguars on Saturday came from freshman.
