STORM LAKE - The Iowa Lakes cross country teams traveled to the Buena Vista Invitational Friday, Sept. 20.
The Laker women ran a 6-kilometer race instead of the normal 5K.
"I think our runners are feeling some fatigue in their legs from all the miles they have been running but times were still very good and should continue to improve over the next few weeks," said Iowa Lakes coach David Peterson. "Leah Courtney again placed in the top 10 with a sixth place finish on the women's side and Andrew Krueger just missed the top 10 with a 12th place finish for the men."
Courtney finished in 25 minutes, 48 seconds. Ashley Weston placed 17th in 29:14, Elizabeth Johnson placed 19th in 29:45, Sam Piehl placed 22nd in 31:32 and Amanda Sheridan placed 23rd in 32:56.
Krueger finished his race in 29:33. He was followed by Tian Siggins in 19th in 32:12, Kyle Kephart placed 22nd in 33:10, Austin Kuchel placed 25th in 29:04 and Jake Menke placed 26th in 40:01.
