September 13, 2012 J The Lovell Chronicle J9 New course challenges Lovell runners BY MERYK MCARTHUR A first for the Lovell cross country team was attending the Wayne Chancy Memorial Invita- tional last Friday in Gil- lette. Racing first were the middle school girls. Jazmyn See ran a time of 15:25, followed close- ly by Karlee Burton, who ran 15:33. Next came Me- gun Corn/a, crossing the line at 16:27, and Meyja McArthur, who pushed for 16:57. Sage Mickelson ran with a time of 17:34, improving her time by 21 seconds. Results for middle school boys were Mi- chael May running with a time of 19:51, Ben Cor- nia pounding out a 15:02, Brenden Lundberg 14:21, 13:59 for Kyle Wolvington and Brent Snyder placing 15th with a time of 12:44. Snyder was named runner of the week. Some of the runners wanted to share their opinion of the meet. Ben Cornia said, "I liked the course a lot. It was fun. I felt good about beating my personal best." Bren- den Lundberg thought, "It was hard...but I'm glad we went." Lundberg beat his personal best by 24 sec- onds. The junior varsity girls race quickly trailed the middle school boys. All the girls were very close. Mackenzie Jue ran a time of 28:33, pursued by Cait- lyn Lundberg with a 28:50 and Afton George running a flat 29:00. George im- proved her time by near- ly 30 seconds on a harder course. High school students participating in the JV boys race were Michael Steiner running 23:11, Derek Phelps with a 26:12 and Konner Davis pulling off28:51. "[The course] was good; it was wild!," Davis said. He enjoyed running at Gillette. Meryk McAr- thur of thevarsity girls ran a 23:35 while AJ Dick- son, running for varsity boys, ran a time of 18:15. Dickson was named run- ner of the week last week for his high placement in COURTESY PHOTO Lovell eighth-grader Jazmyn See works to pull away from a pack during the Wayne Chaney Memorial in Gillette Friday. The Lovell harriers will travel to Cody today (Thursday) and run at the Rocky Mountain Invitational Monday at Foster Gulch. the Billings Invitational. Of the meet Coach Ca- leb Sanders said, "We've never done [this] course before. It was creative; [the] former runners would've loved it." On the creativity McArthur stat- ed, "I enjoyed the race, es- pecially running through the trees and bushes. But the hills wiped me out." Still, the coaches were very impressed with the overall performance of the team. Coach Bret George stated, "[The] course was really tough. /I'm] very happy with people's times on such a difficult course." Gillette's high school race is slightly longer than Billings, so even a consis- tent time is noteworthy.

Gillette's course weaved, wound and overlapped, creating what Sanders said was "a more physi- cal race." It was also con- venient for the coaches to check on runners and eas- ier for the team members to cheer their teammates on at different points of the course. The kids had fun splashing water on their team members while they ran. Wrapping up the Wayne Chaney Memorial Invite, Sanders noted, "To see the improvement in most of the runners, with the added travel time, was encouraging and motivat- ing."
