Manistee National

In a final tune-up for Regionals, the Chips ran in their own backyard at the Manistee National Invite (10-22-11). On a sunny day with a soggy course, the girls took 4th in the large school race while the boys finished 5th.

Kelly Schubert and Annie Fuller went 1-2 for the girls for the 5th time this season, with Kelly setting a new course record of 18:17 while defending her title from last year. Jarret Deisch was top medalist for the boys in 14th place (17:41) with Jonny Bailey and Tyler Sievert (21st and 22nd) not far behind. Bryce Cameron (19:04) and Colin Bachinski (19:17) ran personal bests as well.

Chris Grabowksi Memorial - 2 trophies!

After a week of great weather, rain returned to Manistee, but it didn't slow down the Chip XC teams, as the girls took first and the boys took second at the Chris Grabowski Memorial Invitational. Six high schools competed in the competition. The girls took first over second place Hart, while the boys were second to Kingsley. The MS girls took first place in their race.

Kelly Schubert set a new course record (18:55) while taking first for the ladies. Annie Fuller was second (20:10) and Eva Guillen was fourth (21:23). All of the other girls on the team ran their best times ever for the home course. Jarret Deisch was 3rd overall, leading the boys, followed by Tyler Sievert (6th 18:37) and Jonny Bailey (7th 19:02). The other boys on the team ran their best home course times as well.

Complete results here.

With just 2 weeks until the regional meet, the season is winding down, but the Chips are heading in the right direction!
