Glasgow XC: Girls Take First, Boys Overtake Harlem

Josie Braaten Also Wins At Havre


Glasgow XC hits the Sidney Invitational on Saturday after hitting a speed bump last week in Havre.

A week after the Scotties blazed through flat Fort Peck Kiwanis Park course in their own invitational, their times were bound to rise at the somewhat hilly MSU-Northern course. And they did.

But the girls placed first as team, 10 points ahead of Fergus and way ahead of everyone else. Josie Braaten was the fastest girl in the field at 19:28.

The boys placed fifth among teams, overtaking respected sixth-place Class B rival Harlem, which edged Glasgow to win at Frazer on Sept. 18. At Havre, Gabe Hallock finished 12th overall and tops on the Scotties in 17:58.

Sophomore Brinlie Nielsen placed third on the GHS girls in 22:22 – higher than her personal record of 21:37 at the Glasgow Invite but a “little faster” than the 20:40s that she said she expected at Havre. She also remained well under the time of 23:40 that she started with this season at Poplar.

Junior Braden Meland was fourth among the Scottie boys at 19:20, which he assessed as about “about average.” But he started the season at 20:10 at Poplar, so progress is evident. He also enjoyed a PR of 18:43 at the Scottie Invite.
