Vienna Cross Country qualifies six for state

Posted

Back in the fall of 2014, both the Vienna Eagle and Lady Eagle Cross Country teams qualified for the MSHSAA Cross Country Championships held at Oak Hills Golf Center in Jefferson City.

Looking to end the five-year drought over the weekend, Vienna competed in the MSHSAA Class 1, District 4 meet at the Osage County Fairgrounds in Linn.

Placing second to Hermitage in the girl’s team standings, David Martin’s Vienna Lady Eagles earned a district plaque along with advancing to state as a team for the first time in five years.

Freshman Cameren Doyel led the Lady Eagles with a fifth-place time of 23:49.95 in the Class 1 girl’s race at Linn.

Doyel earned All-District honors for finishing inside the top 15.

Joining Doyel in the Class 1 Girls Race this weekend at the Gans Creek Recreation Area in Columbia will be Alia Terwilliger, Andrea Novak, Kiera Hollis and Madeline Novak.

Eagle junior harrier Caleb Horman will join his Lady Eagle counterparts competing at the 2019 MSHSAA Cross Country Championships in Columbia following his second-place time of 18:17.80 in the Class 1, District 4 boy’s race at Linn.

Eagles competing along with Horman in Linn were Evan Casey (27th, 20:47.59), Gavin Weathers (31st, 21:03.29), Jehoshua Casey (35th, 21:23.91) and Kamden George (38th, 21:59.21).

Placing fourth in the boy’s team standings, Vienna (93), finished behind Calvary Lutheran (38), Fair Play (44) and Hermitage (54).

Also competing in Linn were Belle’s Tigers in the Class 2, District 4 boy’s race.

As the lone Tiger in the race, freshman Trenton Burnett placed 17th in a time of 18:13.25. This left him 10 seconds and two positions out of the top 15 and a trip to the MSHSAA Class 2 Cross Country Championships at Columbia’s Gans Creek Recreation Area.

Burnett was looking to add to his fourth-place finish at the Gasconade Valley Conference (GVC) meet back on Friday, Oct. 25 at the Viburnum Golf and Country Club.

A complete recap from Gans Creek will be in next week’s Advocate.
