The #1 ranked Olympia High School boys cross country team successfully defended their conference title yesterday in the 10-team Illini Prairie Conference meet held at St. Joseph Ogden. It was a “tight race” between Olympia and #6 ranked Monticello, with only 5 points separating the two teams. Olympia’s top 3 runners earned All-Conference status: senior Charlie Kistner was individual Conference Champ with a time of 15:19, senior Logan Wheeler was 5th at 16:08, and junior Owen Dare was 7th at 16:20. Joining them were junior Carter Phillips with a season best 16:33, junior Anthony Ragland at 16:47, freshman Logan Demling at 16:59, and senior Alec Pfeffer at 18:15. The guys will run their IHSA Regional meet in two weeks at Olympia on Saturday, Oct. 24th. Come out and watch this team compete! It’s hard to say which guys' team is the best in Olympia’s history, this year’s team or last year’s team….but there is no doubt that they are the best two guys’ teams that Olympia has been able to assemble. So don’t miss the opportunity to watch this exciting team race as they strive to be the best in the state and in Olympia history! view image
The Olympia High School cross country teams competed in the Illini Prairie Conference meet yesterday at St. Joseph-Ogden. On the girl’s side, this conference is arguably the most competitive small-school conference in the state, with the #1 and #2-ranked teams in the state (Monticello and Tolono Unity) along with #13 (Oly), #15 (St. Thomas More), #19 (St. Joseph-Ogden), and #24 (Central Catholic). Realistically, it was looking to be a battle for the 3rd place team finish. However, things were not looking very promising when it was determined the day before the meet that Anna Bieber (Oly’s top-3 runner) would sit out of the meet due to a muscle strain. This obstacle did not distract the rest of the team from their goal. In true Spartan fashion, the other 6 ladies modeled a perfect illustration of perseverance. They stayed focused on the game plan and executed it flawlessly, with each runner obtaining a season personal best time. This outstanding performance allowed the girls to secure the 3rd place team finish with 90 points, which was 32 points in front of the 4th place team. Individually, senior Savanah Beavers and sophomore Abby Litwiller achieved All-Conference status at 18:13(3rd place) and 19:17(10th place) respectively. Joining them were freshman Rachel Andris at 20:08(19th), sophomore Chrystal Cornwell at 20:49(28th), sophomore Cam Lawson at 21:07(33rd) and senior Emily Litwiller at 22:22(46th). The XC team will host the IHSA regional meet in two weeks (Oct. 24th), so come out and cheer them on. Congrats gals! Amazing job! view image
