Hague, Williams pace MHS at Abilene

The Marion cross-country team kicked off the 2016 season at Abilene Thursday.

“I was very pleased with our performance today,” coach Dmitry Bucklin said. “We represented well and had a total of five medals awarded.”

Colin Williams paved the way for the boys, covering the 5-kilometer course in 19 minutes, 21.3 seconds, good for 12th place overall and an individual medal among a field of 71. Williams trimmed nearly 22 seconds from his time at Abilene last year.

Devin Regnier was 34th (21:14.7), Ethan Darnall 45th (22:03.3) and Tyler Arocha 56th (23:38.4).

Meanwhile, Emily Hague paced the girls by medalling with an 11th-place finish in 24:23.9 among a field of 48. Hague’s time was 57 seconds faster than she recorded last year at Abilene.

Meanwhile, Meggan Frese was 23rd (26:11.1), Bethany Grimmett 33rd (28:15.5), AJ Arterburn 42nd (31:12.8) and Luisa Junqueira 46th (32:48.5).

As a team, the Warrior girls placed fourth behind Wamego, Abilene and Southeast of Saline.

Coming—Marion will run at Hesston tomorrow. The all-class meet will be run by age group, with the freshmen girls kicking things off at 3:30 p.m., followed by the freshman boys’ race at 3:55 p.m. and subsequent races to follow every 25 minutes.
