The STMA boys cross country team opened their season with a scrimmage at the Lower Rec Center fields on Friday, August 26th. Running as a team, many Knights saw improvements from last year’s times including many dropping over a minute. Joining the Knights for the scrimmage were teams from Rocori High School, Annandale High School, and the Northwest Nighthawks.
Leading the Knight’s was senior captain Alex Wolseth, who covered the two-mile course in 10:37, finishing in first place. Sophomores Jonah Breuer and Carter Knaus picked up where they left off as freshman last year and also were part of the lead pack finishing 3rd (10:40) and 5th (10:45) overall. Rounding out the top 5 runners for STMA were senior Joey Herbst (10th) and junior Michael Youngberg (11th). Running in his first high school race, freshman Alex McAloon was STMA’s top freshman, finishing 16th overall.
No official score was kept, but full individual results can be found here. The Knights will be back in action September 8th, at the Monticello Invitational at Bertram Chain of Lakes Regional Park.
