An Adel-Desoto-Minburn freshman won the Raccoon River Conference varsity boys meet Monday in Winterset. Nate Mueller finished the conference’s course at the Lakeview Country Club in 16:21, a personal best performance and a half minute faster than the rest of the field. The league race featured 49 runners from Ballard, Bondurant-Farrar, Boone, Carlisle, and Perry.
