Monett Boys Runners Place Fifth

Wednesday, October 7, 2009

The boys Monett Cubs finished fifth among 22 teams yesterday in the cross country meet held at Springfield Catholic.

"We were 17 points away from second place," said Monett Coach Andy Lemons. "We were missing our fourth runner, Isaac Weber, due to sickness. I think we would have had no problem competing for second if he had been in the line up."

Monett had a team score of 136. Branson won the meet with 54 points.

Running for Monett were: Chris Renteria, 12th with a time of 18:02; Micha Miller, 13th with a time of 18:02; Juan Renteria, 25th with a time of 18:47; Bill Townsend, 47th with a time of 19:39; Caleb Blue, 54th with a time of 20:02; Connor Kimzey, 57th with a time of 20:04; and Ryan Saunders, 66th with a time of 20:27.

The Monett girls did not score in the meet.

Running for the Lady Cubs were: Lauren Sebastian, 45th with a time of 25:57; and Whitney Dahlstrom, 71st with a time of 28:56.

For the junior varsity boys, Michael Morley was 10th with a time of 20:22, Luke Verhoff was 26th with a time of 21:38, Jacques De Plessis was 47th with a time of 22:47, and Daniel Bryan was 49th with a time of 22:36.

Monett runs again at Cassville on Monday.
