Byron runners solid at home invitational

By David Richards

Junior Rebecca Houston was the overall girls champion at the Byron Invitational Sept. 10 and led the Bears to a team championship as well in the five-team field.

The Byron boys took second with a score of 30, just three points off Kasson-Mantorville, which won the meet with 27 points.

"It was very nice," said head coach Tom O'Leary, of his teams' finishes.

The Byron girls placed first with 27 points. Kasson-Mantorville was second with 48 points.

Houston won the meet with her time of 17:14 for the 4K race.

"That is a fantastic time on a tough course," O'Leary said.

At one point, runners have to run into then eventually out of a bean field.

Justine Schneider was second in 17:43 and fourth overall; Maddie Ford was third in 18:23 and sixth overall; Regina Burroughs was fourth in 18:28 and seventh overall; while Haley Abrams was fifth in 18:52 and ninth overall.

Also finishing for the Bears were Olivia Stahler, who crossed the finish in 19:32 for 12th overall; and Siobhan Chantigan, who crossed in 21:12 for 19th overall.

"It's awesome to have depth, especially with the girls," O'Leary said.

In the junior varsity girls race, Hannah Higgins, a seventh grader, won with a time of 18:48.

On the boys side, the Bears ran without junior Jonah Gehrt, who wasn't available for the meet.

Senior Ian Thomason led the Bears in a time of 18:31 for the 5K race and fifth place overall.

Tim Entgelmeier was second for Byron in 18:46 for sixth place overall; Cam Slowinski was third in 19:10 for eighth place; Mike Sigrist was fourth in 20:25 for 10th; Nate Peterson was fifth in 20:30 for 11th; Sam Marolt was sixth in 21:17 for 13th; while Sam Burich was seventh in 21:18 for 14th.

"They pushed each other," O'Leary said, of the two Sams.

The Byron meet was also senior day, with the Bears honoring Abrams; Megan O'Leary; Chantigan and manager Heather Livingood on the girls side, as well as Thomason; Sigrist; Burich and Entgelmeier for the boys.
