CHAPMAN, Kans.—Chapman High School does not conduct its annual cross country invitational the same as most schools do. The Irish break their races down into two varsity races, one for freshman and sophomores, the other for juniors and seniors.
The way the Irish conducting their 2011 meet made it relatively slim that any group would be able to compete as a team.
Wamego scored 15 points in each of the female races, 20 points, compared to 45 for Republic County in the freshman-sophomore male race for the crown and 20, compared to 44 for Concordia in the junior-senior male race.
Individually, however, the Red Raiders were only able to claim one gold medal. Wamego’s Hudson Phillip ran the course in 17:30.45 in the junior-senior male race and pick up an 0:18 second victory over his teammate Bradley Borger.
Concordia was able to claim both female individual titles as Courtney Monzon finished the course in 16 minutes, 12.97 seconds to win the freshman-sophomore female race while Concordia’s Ashlynn Lambert ran the course in 16 minutes, 53.41 seconds to win the junior-senior female race.
While there were only three complete teams competing in the races Thursday afternoon, there were runners from Concordia, Wamego, Council Grove, Wakefield, Republic County, Peabody-Burns and Chapman at the meet which was conducted at Chapman’s Indian Hills Golf Course.
