e 8 The Lovell Chronicle October 1, 2015 Lovell harriers run well in Worland, look to postseason BY DAVID PECK With just two weeks left before the regional and state meets, the Lovell Bulldog cross country team is keeping their eye on the big meets ahead and work- ing hard to get into post- season shape while not wearing out legs in the process, coach Caleb Sand- ers said this week. As such, Sanders has decided not to send his high school squad to the Bobcat Invitational in Thermopo- lis this Friday, taking only the middle school runners. “We looked at the schedule and decided we need to use this week as a training week,” Sand- ers said. “We need to get in some miles and some training. Sometimes if you race too much it tricks your body into thinking you’ve peaked.” Last week, Lovell at- tended the 10-team Wor- land Invitational on Thurs- day, which gave coaches a chance to enter some run- ners in the junior varsity division, others in varsi- ty, even though there was only one race each for high school girls and boys, as well as the middle school races. Senior Jacob Newman ran well in Worland, mov- ing up from about ninth place at the one-mile mark to place third with a strong time of 17:29.91, about 42 seconds faster than he ran three days earli- er at the Rocky Mountain Invitational. Coaches named New- man as the high school runner of the week. “Jacob steadily moved up and over the last two miles passed people and cut the gap, which is the way I like it,” Sanders said. “You should be able to move up. I know he felt v better than he did in the Rocky meet, and it was a similar course. . Chance Martello of Worland passed Micah Sweeney of Sheridan late to win the race in 17:19.66, and while Sweeney (17:26.50) held off New- man for second place, New- man outsprinted Hunter Graves of Cody (17:30.43) to place third. Sophomore Brent Sny- der ran nearly the same time that he ran at Fos- ter Gulch and placed 18th with a time of 18:46.90. Further down in the pack were Kyle Wolvington, 39th at 20:22.90, Ben Cornia, 44th at 20:55.15, and Kyle Burton, 48th at 28:10.34. ' “It wasn’t a standout race for Brent, but I was glad to see Kyle and Ben inch closer to the 19-min- ute mark,” Sanders said. Sanders put his young- er runners in the JV divi- sion, and freshman Bren- den Lundberg placed 215’t with a time of 21:24.38, almost five minutes fast— er than he ran Monday at Foster Gulch. Hunter Steenbakkers plaeced 25th at 21:43.31 and JR Dick- son 62“d with a time of 30:19.94. “It was nice to see Brenden put in a bet- ter race. I still believe he can run faster,” Sanders said. “Hunter stood out at V «moat: the meet, to me. He keeps making improvements and moving up.” GIRLS RACE Senior Jaclyn Caldwell had a tougher race Thurs- day than at Foster Gulch Monday and placed 10th with a time of 21:41.28. He said Caldwell actually felt better Monday than she did Thursday. Afton George fin- ished 43ml with a time of 27:05.91, Savannah Jol— ley 47th at 27:36.50 and Caitlyn Lundberg 53rd at 29:46.91. Two Lady Bulldogs competed in the JV divi- sion. Sophomore Jessi— ca Caldwell placed second with a time of 23:09.91, Megan Cornia 25th at 28:20.84. “It wasn’t a good race for Jackie Thursday,” Sanders said, “but we’ll take that (23:09) from Jes- sica. Savannah had a pret- ty good week, too. “I monitored the race and they all ran good times the first mile, then faded in the last two miles in the heat. I thought Afton had a good race.” MIDDLE SCHOOL Sanders said the mid- dle school girls squad had a strong meet at Worland. “The middle school girls continue to impress me as a collective group,” he said. “To have four girls in the top 20, I like that.” Lauren Mitchell placed seventh with a time of 13:38.38, and Patti Sand- ers placed 12th at 14:17.34, Considering a mammogram?

Steed was named the Lovell Middle School runner of the week for her performance during the Worland meet Thursday. Raeghan Wacker 14th at 14:37.72 and Maddisun Steed 20th at 14:58.37. “Lauren got off to a faster start, and when she does that she races better,” Sanders said. “I was happy , i I with Patti. She ran a nega— tive split (second mile fast— er than the first). Both of them ran great. Maddisun ran her best race and time of the season.” Coaches named Steed as the middle school run- ner of the week. Sariah Hendershot fin— ished 38th with a time of 16:09.97, Brooklyn Walk— er 48th at 17:56.18, Addie Dickson 56th at 19:38.78 and Krystalyn Palmer 58th at 20:36.62. James Caldwell was once again the top finish- er for the LMS boys, plac— ing fifth with a time of 11:40.28.
