Tigers take on unusual course at Ipswich meet

Running on a makeshift course that included the track, a parking lot and laps around the ball diamonds, the Tigers raced in the Ipswich Invitational cross country meet on Saturday.
The odd course had to be run because of wet conditions at Split Rock Country Club in Ipswich.
“It wasn’t the best of conditions,” said coach J.J. Beadle, “but they hung in there.”
Heidi Olson finished near the front for the third consecutive time. The course did not bother her as she ran a time of 18 minutes 53 seconds.
“Heidi is just a strong runner,” said Beadle.
Tessa Kilber of Ipswich had a dominating win. She finished at 18:15. Olson fought her way past third-place finisher Tyra Berry of Milbank who came in at 18:54 and fourth place Emily DeRaad of Ipswich who crossed the finish line at 18:55.
Even though none of the boys placed (the meet only placed the top 10 in the 59-runner field), they had a good meet.
Blaise Thompson and Remmington Ford led the team. Thompson took 13th and Ford 14th. They had times of 16:59 and 17:03. Caelan McCollam earned a top 20 finish, taking 17th at 17:07. Kamron Pearman ran 17:50 for 26th.
The Tigers had some in-team competition with the rest of the team.
“We want them competing against one another,” said Beadle. “Six runners go to regions and they have to earn it in the competitions.”
It is going to be a dog fight if the results are any indication. Kody Keller took 31st, Chad Good Shield 32nd and Logan Vetch 34th. All three ran 18:03. Bryton Vetch took 35th at 18:04.
With their three top 20 finishes, the Tigers took third in team points. Milbank won with 19 points. Timber Lake was second with 29 points and the Tigers third with 37 points.
The younger runners had some success, too. In the junior varsity races, Hunter Spotted Bear took seventh and Elliot Bearsheart eighth in the boys. division and Skighe McCann took 12th in the girls’ division. In the junior high races, Jacy Netterville took fourth and Blake Thompson ninth in the girls’ division, while Corbin Stoick took eighth and Bryce Meyer 20th in the boys’ division.

Big Dakota
Up next for the cross country team is the Big Dakota Conference Meet in Chamberlain on Thursday. The meet is actually a combination meet. It is the BDC and the Chamberlain Invitational so the chance to earn two medals is on the line.
