I ran the Omaha Corporate Cup run. It was great weather, it was a 10k (6.2 mile) race. I started in the unseeded section of the race, next year I’ll get my seeded pass for the race. I ran a 39:34, I was hoping for atleast 2 minutes faster, but this is a good mark to start with.

Both St. Cecilia’s Boys Cross Country team placed third at the Fillmore Central Invite. This is a very large meet that brings some of the top teams in the state. Derek Sekora led the team with a 6th place finish. Zach Dubas (14th), Brian Neilson (17th) and Brandon Boesh (20th) were very close behind.

STC XC has started the season with a bang. The Boys team won the Superior Invite and the Hastings Triangular meet. We’ve seen some impressive times, the gap between our top runners time is very small. It is going to be really tough breaking up our group and score less than the STC boys.

The Girls team placed 2nd in the Superior meet after Fairbury, who ran an impressive race as a team. We won the Hastings Triangular. Our top two runners are tough, they will be difficult to beat. Our next 3 runners are doing very well, running very strong times, keeping our scores low. In particular, I see Jenna Williams making a huge difference this season.

We have been noticed, you can see that both teams are high in the cross country rankings. Our next race at Filmore Central will be a much better test of our abilities, there will be many great teams there for us to prove our talent.
