Scottie Runners Earn Letter


Nineteen GHS runners earned their “G” during the 2015 cross country season. Scottie XC head coach Rod Karst presented the runners with letters and pins at the team awards dinner last Monday, and congratulated them on a fine season. He said that eleven out of the fourteen runners who competed at the state meet achieved their personal best there, no small feat considering the state meet ran on a 5K course, longer than the usual 3-mile distance by 0.1 mile.

The letter-qualifying time for girls is 24 minutes; for boys, 20. The girls who lettered are: Julia Kolstad, Alex Simensen, Mary Fewer, Morgan Guttenberg, Brinlie Nielsen, Emily Kolstad, Faith Sallee, and Katie Kaiser.

The boys: Walker Allen, Logan Gunderson, Chase Hughes, Braden Meland, Ethan Jamba, Gabe Hallcok, Colin Jamba, Ellis McKean, Merlin McKean, Cade Myrick and Shane Sinclair.

Coach Karst is already looking forward to the next season. “We set high standards and we push each other. Those of you who didn’t letter—I know you will get there. Let’s get on the podium next year, but we’ve got to work hard this spring and summer,” said Karst.
