The Ranger cross country teams finish 6th and 7th at the Allendale Falcon Invite


This past weekend, the FHC cross country teams competed in the Allendale Falcon Invite. The girls team placed sixth out of 12 teams, and the boys team placed seventh out of 14 teams. The course was wet from the previous day’s rain, and the terrain was flat, allowing for great competition between the teams.

Junior Whitney Currie led the girls team, coming in with a time of 19:12.3. This time put her in the first place of her division out of 85 total runners. Following Whitney was senior Nicole Marco, finishing with a time of 20:06.4. Then, the third-best runner for FHC was senior Ellie Harner, finishing with a time of 21:23.5.

Leading the boys team was senior Gabe Carlson. He came in with a time of 16:16.7, putting him in sixth place out of 96 total runners. The second runner for FHC was sophomore Sam Yeager, finishing with a time of 16:59.0. Trailing only four seconds behind Sam was junior Kyle James-Heer, coming in with a time of 17:03.8.
