Girls Middle School Cross Country · Girls Middle School Cross Country finishes 6th place at Versailles Invitational


  Place Points
Coldwater High School 6th 152

As we get to the end of September, the JH Lady Cavs traveled to Versailles where they raced at the Tour De Sewer XC Invite. I know what you are thinking when you hear the words “Tour De Sewer”. Is it named after a prominent person in the community? Does it recognize a famous coach who sits in the pantheon of cross country coaches? Nope to all those guesses. It is literally a cross country course that gives you a “Tour” of the water treatment plant. The smell is at times unbearable, but this year they provided the ultimate item that tipped the scales in their favor as an outstanding meet…Chic-fil-a sandwiches. Nice move Versailles.

The JH Lady would finish 6th place at the Tour De Sewer. Leading the pack was Kate Hemmelgarn with a time of 15:25. 30 seconds behind Kate would start a “blob” JH runner with Ella Kahlig at 15:55, Eve Lisi at 16:01, and Izzy Zahn at 16:18. The very challenging course not only was home to a very bad smell that was at times bad enough to make a maggot gag, but also hills that would show up on the times for the girls. After Izzy, Faith Pohlman would cross the line at 17:35 and rounding out the JH Cavs was Nora Wehrkamp 24:31.

The JH Lady Cavs will be back in action on Thursday at Montezuma at the Celina JH Invitation. Good luck Ladies.
