It’s an early start to the competition week for the ADM boys and girls cross country teams.
The Tigers resume their season this afternoon at the Ballard Golf and Country Club in the Ballard Cross Country Invitational. This race is the third this fall for both ADM cross country teams.
The Tigers were last in competition six days ago at the Winterset Cross Country Invitational, and multiple runners posted top 15 finishes. Junior Sadie Jurgens was the only Tiger to finish among the top 15 in the girl’s race. Her time of 20:12 was the second best time recorded. Three ADM boys runners cracked the top 15 at Winterset, including freshman Ethan Jurgens (sixth; 17:23), freshman Nate Mueller (ninth; 17:47), and senior Rylan Hefferman (11th; 17:52).
Today’s field features runners from Ballard, Bondurant-Farrar, Boone, Carlisle, Creston Community, Dallas Center-Grimes, Eagle Grove, Garner-Hayfield, Gilbert, Humboldt, Iowa Falls-Alden, Nevada, Nodaway Valley, North Polk, Norwalk, Pella, Perry Community, Roland-Story, South Hardin, Webster City, and Winterset. The first race will begin at 4:30 p.m. at the Ballard Golf and Country Club in Huxley.
