BOYS CROSS COUNTRY
The boys cross country team turned in a fine performance at the Jack Wilhelm Classic on Saturday. The Demons placed 5 runners in the top 10. Leading the way for Westlake was Jon Simon with a 6th place finish. He and Daniel Squeri battled it out towards the finish. Squeri placed 7th overall by a mere .2 tenths of a second behind Simon.
Four seconds later, Zach Goodman crossed the tape, followed 2 seconds later by Ian Hulse.
Aaron Brown ran a great race placing 10th overall and Peter Eyer placed 15th.
In the Open race, the boys faired very well. Although no team score was kept the Demons ran well as a pack.
Gavin Kelly made is season debut after a season with a broken arm and won the open race.
Also performing well were Seniors Stephen Fleischer, Conner Mancini, Chad Clark,Grant Gase, Andrew Guirgus and Youseff Kirallah.
The Demons will run at the SWC Championship Meet this Saturday at LCCC.
GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY
The girls ended up winning the overall and the individual championships at the Jack Wilhelm Invitational at LCCC. The top three ran really well with Morgan Hansen outrunning Grace Jenkins at the end to take the individual championship, but more importantly they all worked together during the race and ran some decent times considering the sloppiness of the course. The four and five, Nora Lee and Hannah McCarthy, seem to be coming on strong, so if they can continue to run well, in the next two weeks they can hopefully improve upon our last year’s SWC and District finish.
LUTHERAN WEST BOYS SOCCER
Lutheran West beat Cuyahoga Heights on Saturday, 2-0, to improve their record to 10-3
Halftime score: LW 1, CH 0
MAGNIFICAT CROSS COUNTRY
The Varsity-A team finished 3rd place overall while the Varsity-B team finished 9th in the field of 21 teams at the Medina Cross Country Festival on Saturday. Abbie Marquard led the team once again with a strong 6th place finish. She was followed behind by the B team’s number one runner, Katie Kerr, who finished 20th overall. Freshmen Elise Horning and Katie Whitmore, along with sophomore Gretchen Horning, rounded out the top 5 for the A team. The team’s top 8 runners impressively finished in the top 40 of the 142 runner race.
”The day once again was about competing for place rather than time,” said head coach Anjanette Arabian. “The course was muddy and soft in many places making it difficult to navigate quickly. However, cross country is about racing with the conditions presented on any given day and seeing who can traverse the course the best.”
The varsity team will take this coming weekend off from competition while the remaining portion of the team will compete at Sim Earich at the Trumbull County Fairgrounds.
