September 24, 2015 1 The Lovell Chronicle 1 9 BY DAVID PECK A busy Rocky Moun- tain Grizzly cross coun- try team passed the mid- point of the 2015 season this week, with the high school runners travel- ing to Lander Thursday and the middle and high school teams hosting the Rocky Mountain Invita- tional Monday at Foster Gulch. Rocky's up-and-com- ing squad of five boys com- peted in the varsity race at Lander Thursday. Ju- nior Dominic Twomey was tops on the Rocky squad and eighth overall with a time of 19:21.10, while junior Zack Milbrad and sophomore Stephen Pre- ator finished 36th and 39th, respectively, with times of 21:38.74 and 21:51.40. Senior Spur Hackney placed 40th at 21:53.63, while sophomore Lathan May was hot on his heels in 41st at 21:56.99. "Dominic has contin- ued to establish himself as one of the best 2A run- ners in the state," coach John Bernhisel said. "He has been our best runner at every meet so far this year. As a team captain he encourages and motivates us all." In the junior varsity race sophomore Jonathan Allred placed 14th with a time of 23:25.66, senior Josh McCracken 30th at 25:12.64 and junior Trev- an Lytle 40th at 26:24.28. Four Lady Grizzlies ran in the girls varsity race as freshman Grace Wassmer led the way in 30th place with a time of 25:51.56, followed close- ly by junior Livia Hig- gins, who placed 31st at 26:00.81, and freshman Jacque Leonhardt, mak- ing it three Rocky runners in a row, placing 32nd at 26:01.30. Sophomore Cal- DAVID PECK Rocky Mountain freshman Grace Wassmer runs during the Rocky Mountain cross country invitational Monday afternoon at Foster Gulch. Wassmer was the top finisher for the Lady Grizz, placing 10th with a time of 23:45. lin Preator of Burlington placed 41st with a time of 27:00.72. Burlington sophomore Pacee Garza led the Lady Grizz in the JV race, plac- ing 13th with a time of 28:57.90, and freshman Lindsay Tindle finished 22nd at 35:01.48. "Although Grace is only a freshman, she has quickly become Rocky's number one female run- ner," Bernhisel said. "She works hard in practice and gives us everything she has in meets." HOME MEET Three Grizzly boys fin- ished in the top 10 Monday at Foster Gulch. Twom- ey was strong again as he placed sixth, covering the course in 19:48. Following close behind were Preator, seventh at 20:29, and Hackney, eighth at 20:31. May, Milbrad and Allred placed 11% 12th and 13th, respectively, with times of 20:58, 21:07 and 21:27. McCracken placed 18th with a time of 22:32, Lytle 23rd at 24:15. Ryker Everett did not finish the race due to an injury. "For parents and fans it was a perfect afternoon for a cross country meet," Bernhisel said. "As a run- ner I would have liked it about 10 degrees cooler. "Sometimes I worry about my own teams not performing well at our home meet because so much of my energy and the energy of my assis- tant coaches is put into running the meet. At our conference meet in three weeks (at Foster Gulch) I want to step away from the meet organization about an hour before it starts and focus on getting my athletes ready and them doing their best." In the girls race, Was- smer was the top finish- er for Rocky Mountain, placing 10th with a time of 23:45, while Higgins and Marissa Arnold fin- ished 13th and 14th, respec- tively, covering the course in 25:00 and 25:10. Cal- lin Preator finished 16th with a time of 26:32, Tin- dle 23rd at 36:54. Jacque Leonhardt did not finish the race due to an injury. Six middle school run- ners competed for the Rocky boys led by sev- enth-grader Zach Sim- mons, who placed eighth with a time of 13:43 on the shorter middle school course. Eighth-grader Justin Dausman placed 13th with a time of 14:26, while Richard Spann and George Higgins ran neck and neck. Spann placed 16th with a time of 15:11, Higgins 17th at 15:16. Landen Stebner fin- ished 19 at 15:28, and Dawson May was two places behind him in 21st with a time of 16:24. The lone Lady Griz- zly runner for the mid- dle school squad was seventh-grader Elsie Was- smer, who placed 26th with a time of 17:04. "It is fun to me to see how strong the oth- er schools around the ba- sin have become since we started our team in 1991," Bernhisel said. "Cross country is still growing every year in Wyoming. "We've got a few sore muscles and aches and pains right now, partly be- cause we've been pushing so hard in practice. One downside of two meets in a week is you can't real- ly take the time off before and after meets and hard workouts to recover. Ul- timately, the goal is the championships at the end of the season." The Grizzlies will start to look toward the regional and state meets as they compete at the Worland Invitational to- day (Thursday), with ac- tion beginning at 3 p.m. with the middle school girls race.

Most colleges and universities require students to have health insurance. College-sponsored plans often provide limited benefits and more exclusions than traditional plans, so you may want to look into an additional policy. For example, most student plans have limited catastrophic coverage per accident or illness and may exclude routine examinations and injuries. Make sure your student has a copy of all relevant insurance cards. If insured by a health maintenance organization (HMO), see if your student will be outside the HMO service area. If so, emergency care will be available, but your student may have to travel for routine care. If your insurer is part of a preferred provider organization (PPO), your policy may pay lower benefits if using an out-of-network facility. Check your plan provisions for benefit levels. Check with your agent to determine if you need different cover- age for a student's car. Ask about the rates for the college's city and state before deciding whether to keep your student's automobile on your policy. Some insurance companies have discounts for good students, so be sure to check in with your carrier each semester. Many students bring thousands of dollars' worth of per- sonal items -- laptops, tablets, televisions and clothing -- to school. See if your homeowner's policy covers your student's personal items. If your student is younger than 26, enrolled in classes and living in on-campus housing, your homeowners policy will likely extend to their belongings. However, if your student is living off-campus, your plan may not extend to rental property. If not, consider renter's insurance. th Ygbusy an diJltlee: :de:(; ff de:didit tion, they must usually fill out paperwork that may require sensitive personal information, such as financial aid forms, rental documents and credit card applications. Identity theft insurance cannot protect someone from becoming a victim of identity theft and does not cover direct losses. However, it does cover the cost of reclaiming a financial identity -- such as the costs of making phone calls, making copies, mailing documents, taking time off from work without pay and hiring an attorney. Check to see if your homeowner's policy includes identity theft insurance, and ask your agent if this extends to your student living away from home. If not, you might be able to purchase a stand-alone policy from another insurer, bank or credit card company. If your student is renting an apartment, ask if your renter's insurance covers identity theft, or if it could be added to the policy.
