Silo Boys Cross Country Team State Bound
Silo Boys Cross Country took first place at the 2A Regional Championships Saturday held in Velma, Oklahoma. Coach Bobbie Pratt said, "The boys have been working hard all season for this opportunity."
The Rebels were led by Sophomore Dylan Gaskill (18:40) who placed 7th out of the 91 competitors. Junior Lukas Long ran a 19:09 which earned him 11th overall. He was followed by Senior Cody Shelton who came in 12th with a 19:10. Fourteenth place was taken by Junior Trenton Long (19:17) and 19th by Sophomore Nic Posekany (20:04). Pushing the Rebels were Senior Tyler Crozier (20:45) and Freshman Jessen Pratt (21:05).
Pratt added, "These guys get it. They know that it is more than just them; they are a team. They practiced hard and knew they were better than their 16th place ranking. For them to come in and beat the number two team, Velm-Alma... it is just the momentum they need to drive through the State Championships next week."
The Silo girls placed 9th at Regionals, falling short of qualifying for the State Championships. Pratt said, "These girls have faced a lot of adversity this season with their top two runners sitting out due to injuries. The remaining girls did not give up. They continued to improve and ran personal bests at regionals. I am very proud of their progress and dedication." The Silo girls team consisted of Juniors Heather and Jessica Ingram, Freshman Patience Baucom, Junior Larissa Erker, Sophomore Juli Hanks and Sophomore Autumn Waters.
