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.

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