TREYNOR — Six area individuals earned spots in the State Cross Country Meet next week in Fort Dodge with top-10 performances Thursday in the Class 1A state-qualifying meet here.

The top three schools and top 10 individuals from each race move on to the Nov. 2 state meet at the Lakeside Municipal Golf Course in Fort Dodge.

Nodaway Valley’s 13th-ranked boys team narrowly missed qualifying, finishing six points behind third-ranked Boyer Valley, the third qualifier. Riverside, ranked 10th, won the boys title with 73 points by three points over second-ranked Council Bluffs St. Albert.

Three Nodaway Valley runners cracked the top 10 to qualify as individuals — freshman Shane Breheny (second), sophomore Heath Downing (fourth) and freshman Brayten Funke (eighth).

Mount Ayr senior Noah Larsen won the 5-kilometer race in 16.44.89, by a 16-second margin over Breheny. The two were running shoulder-to-shoulder until Larsen pulled away in the last 3/4 of a mile.

Wyatt Schulz of Logan-Magnolia finished in third place, just .05 of a second better than NV’s Downing.

The Wolverines also had a 19th-place finish from Nathan Venteicher, three positions behind Orient-Macksburg leader Jesse Johnson, 16th in 17:43.35. Mount Ayr’s Jack Jones was 22nd in 18:03.89.

Girls team state qualifiers are defending champion and seventh-ranked Griswold, sixth-ranked St. Albert and Exira-EHK. Griswold’s two-time state champion, Rebekah Topham, battled through a foot injury that held her out of the two previous meets and dominated the 4K race.

Topham cruised to the title with a time of 14:57, more than a minute ahead of runner-up Kirsten Weber of Earlham in 16:05.

Nodaway Valley sophomore Destiny Scar ran third in 16:10.70. East Union freshman Emma Harper also earned a trip to state by taking fifth in 16:19.90. Bedford’s Charissa Mogler grabbed the 10th and final qualifying position in 16:42.90.

Mount Ayr’s Adrian Richards was a contender, ending in 14th place in 17:15.40. Southwest Valley’s Stephanie Shuler ran 36th in 18:24.60.

The Class 1A girls race is at 2 p.m. Nov. 2 at Lakeside Municipal Golf Course, while the 1A boys race is 2:30 p.m. Awards ceremony for Class 1A is scheduled at 3 p.m., concluding the event that begins at 11 a.m. with the girls 4A race.
