With temperatures in the low 50’s, and relatively gentle winds, the conditions were nearly ideal for some fast times at the State Cross Country Championships held in Kearney on Friday, October 25. 

The Class C girls’ race was the first of the day, and the Lady Warriors did not disappoint! Senior Zoe Christenson continued her excellence on the course, and ran an outstanding race, earning her first ever state medal with a 5th place finish, and All-State honors! 

Marke Zeleny was the next to cross the finish line, setting a new personal best of 22:29, and a 69th place finish. Next in was Hannah Jorgensen running a season best performance of 22:55.8, and Megan Robinson completing the scorers, running 23:28, good enough for 86th place. Also running for the Lady Warriors were Esmeralda Perez (87th), and Samantha Sutton (94th), who both ran personal bests to finish the season. For their efforts, the girls earned a 10th place finish. 

“I couldn’t be more proud of Zoe and the entire girls’ team,” commented Head Coach Karla Curran. “They worked hard, and with Zoe’s leadership ended up as one of the top 10 teams in Class C.”

The boys’ team ran an hour later, and were also led by another senior, Grant Crockett. Crockett completed his senior career with a 24th place finish and a time of 17:42.3.

Josh Graber followed close behind, and ran 17:42.8, and a 25th place finish. Michael Robinson was next in for the Warriors, running 18:49.2, and teammate Garrett Grandgenett squeaked in just behind Robinson, running 18:50.5. Senior Jerstan Zeleny (79th), and Carson Reynolds (84th) also ran for the Warriors. The boys’ team finished 7th in the team standings. 

“I told the boys going in if we could finish in the top six in the team standings, we would have a good day,” replied Karla Curran. “We finished 7th, so we were very close to that goal.”

It has been four long years since both Wahoo Cross Country squads have made it to the State Meet in Kearney, but on Thursday, October 17, the drought ended! 

Both teams qualified for the State Meet to be held in Kearney this Friday, October 25. The C-1 District meet was hosted by Boys Town, and the girls took the third and final qualifying spot, while the gentlemen grabbed the runner-up position, finishing behind only D.C. West.

The girls were once again led by senior Zoe Christenson, who claimed the second place medal with a time of 20:16. Next in for the Warriors were freshmen Marke Zeleny and Megan Robinson, who both ran well, finishing 19th and 22 respectively. Hannah Jorgensen closed out the Wahoo scorers with a time of 23:32, and a 25th place finish. Esmeralda Perez 30th and Samantha Sutton 40th completed the Warrior team. 

The boys were led by another senior, Grant Crockett, who placed third with a time of 17:32. Josh Graber was next in for the Warriors, finishing 8th, and just cracking the 18 minute barrier. Sophomores Michael Robinson (20th) and Carson Reynolds (26th) ran extremely well, and helped propel the team to its runner-up position. Jerstan Zeleny and Garrett Grandgenett finalized the Wahoo team, squeaking into the top thirty in 28th and 29th, respectively.

“I can’t say enough about how hard these kids fought today to make it to the State Meet,” commented Coach Karla Curran. “They knew going in who they had to beat, and they went out there and did it! I couldn’t be more proud!”

The Wahoo Harriers will compete at State this Friday. The girls’ race is set for 12:00 p.m., while the boys will race at 1:00 p.m.

Crockett, Christenson claim conference titles (by Jason Unger, Wahoo Newspaper, 10/16/2019)
_______________

It was a day of personal bests and new course records as seniors Zoe Christenson and Grant Crockett took to the course on Wednesday, October 9, for the Capitol Conference Cross Country Meet hosted by Wahoo High School. 

The meet was moved up a day due to impending bad weather; however, that didn’t seem to rattle Christenson, as she ran a personal best time of 20:06, outdistancing her competitors by sixteen seconds, and setting a new course record in the process. 

Next across the line for the Lady Warriors were freshman Megan Robinson (13th) and Marke Zeleny (17th), who both had record setting days of 22:25, and 22:31, respectively. Hannah Jorgensen (21st), Esmeralda Perez (27th), and Samantha Sutton (32nd) also ran for the Warriors. The girls’ team finished in fourth place. 

“It was definitely a good day for most of our girls,” commented Coach Karla Curran, “and Zoe continues to impress with another outstanding performance.”   

The boys’ team was up next, and once again, Crockett led the way. In a hard-fought battle for most of the race, Crockett pulled away for the win, with a personal best time of 17:11. 

Freshman Garrett Grandgenett ran an outstanding race running 18:28, improving his best time by 32 seconds. Following close behind were Michael Robinson in 18:36, and Carson Reynolds in 18:51. Completing the varsity squad were Jerstan Zeleny (27th) and Josh Graber (44th). The Wahoo Harriers placed third in the team standings. 

“Grant ran a very smart race today, and beat some very strong runners,” stated Curran “We will need all of our boys to run at their best, if we want to have a chance at qualifying for State next week.” 

The Warriors will compete at the C-1 District meet at Boys Town on Thursday, October 17. The girls will take off at 4:00 p.m., followed by the boys at 4:45 p.m.

Warrior Harriers Trenton Erdmann-Hughes (12th place) and Hannah Jorgensen (9th place) at the Sept. 5 Schuyler Invite.

Hot and humid were two words that best described the racing conditions as the Wahoo Harriers opened their 2019 racing season. In spite of the less than favorable conditions, both teams performed remarkably well. 

The gentlemen began the day with a second place team finish, and an overall champion in senior Grant Crockett. Crockett won the race easily, outdistancing the rest of the field by thirty-two seconds. 

“Grant had a great day! He ran smart, and simply cruised to a victory,” commented Head Coach Karla Curran. “Next week he will definitely be challenged at our home invitational.” 

Josh Graber, Trenton Erdmann-Hughes, and Jerstan Zeleny also placed for the Warriors, and the two freshmen, Ethan Havlovic and Garrett Grandgenett, finished just out of medal contention. 

“For our first meet, I thought the boys ran pretty well. We definitely will need to close the gap between our second and third runners, if we want to be successful in the big meets,” replied Curran.

As for the girls’ squad, they, too, placed second in the overall team standings. Senior Zoe Christenson emerged as the overall champion, after a tough battle from start to finish in the girls 5000-meter race. 

“It was a battle from the start, but Zoe just hung in there and out-kicked the Schuyler girl for the win. I couldn’t be more proud of this young lady!” Curran commented. “She has worked very hard this summer, and her hard work is paying off!” 

Two other Warriors, Hannah Jorgensen and Megan Robinson, also placed for the girls’ team, running 9th and 15th, respectively. Freshmen Esmeralda Perez, Samantha Sutton, and Grace Darling rounded out the varsity squad, with two finishing in the top 25.

“We definitely have some work to do on the girls’ side, but it is early, and I am confident that these girls can get it done,” added Curran.

Next up for the Warriors is their own home invitational on Thursday, September 12. The first race is set to begin at 4:00 p.m.
