Game Summary





Boys XC vs Robinson

The Father McGivney XC teams traveled to Robinson IL to get an “eastern flavor” of the IL State competition and fared well.  Racing against the likes of 1A powers Robinson and Tolono Unity, and 2A state-ranked Olney-Richland County, Mattoon, Charleston, Effingham... only the #19 2A Olney Tigers defeated the Griffins 65-78, with state-ranked Robinson scoring 98 with their top-5 scores. 

The Griffins scored extremely well with their top three (Tyler Guthrie-4th: 15:43, Brandon Ahring-8th: 16:20, Zach Brasel-9th: 16:20), and Tanner Fox battled to finish 28th: 17:17, and freshman Riley Strack-41st: 17:46.  Noah Beltremea (67th) and Andrew Dupy (68th) brought in our top-7.  It was good to see Brandon break-through; he was disappointed in his effort in Benton, and really brought it today.  There were 141 varsity runners/25 schools.

JV Boys: Nolan Shearer-13th: 18:48, Evan Rybak-24th: 19:52, and Wyatt Biermann-36th had good races, with Shearer only 7 sec. from our varsity top-7 time!
