Cardinal boys finish in top half of the field at Seneca

The Cardinal runners had a week of ups and downs related to temperature, similar to what one endures on a cross country course, with record highs early in the week and temps hovering in the upper 50s and lower 60s late in the week. However, the harriers weathered it all to prepare for the next meet and for Wetmore that would come by way of the Nemaha Central Invitational on Thursday, Sept. 22, in Seneca. Without any female athletes to represent their school for this meet, three Cardinal varsity boys ran strong and finished in the top half of the field of runners.

There were 54 male competitors at Seneca, with the fastest time being posted for the race that was a time of 17 minutes, 25 seconds. Freshman Kristopher Fulkerson ran a strong race and crossed the line in 18 minutes, 49 seconds to capture sixth place in the meet leading his teammates in the race. Fellow freshman Gavin Fulkerson finished second for his team and 12th overall with a time of 19 minutes, 28 seconds. Junior runner Brayden McQueen finished 26th overall with a time of 20 minutes, 21 seconds.

“I am very proud of their improvement from meet to meet,” said Head Coach Seth Stiers.

These Cardinal harriers traveled to Centralia for their next invitational on Saturday, Oct. 1.
