(Left to right) Wilson Overby, Merlin McKean, Ellis McKean and Ike Braaten lead a pack of runners during the Malta Invitational cross country meet Sept. 9. M. McKean, Braaten and E. McKean were the top three runners for the Scotties and helped the team to their win at the meet.

Following two fairly intense competitions held in Williston and Billings, the Scottie cross country team was in Malta for a more low-key race on Sept. 9.

The course, which was held at the golf course, consisted mostly of moderate rolling hills with stretches of even path for the runners to navigate.

Likely the most difficult part of the course for the competitors was the slight incline just before the finish line.

The varsity boys easily defeated their competition, scoring 34 points to win the meet. Leading their team were Ellis McKean, Ike Braaten and Merlin McKean, who placed third, fourth and fifth, respectively.

The girls were led to a second-place finish behind Havre by Emily Kolstad, who placed fifth overall.

The cross country runners will have two meets this week: Frazer on Thursday, Sept. 14, and Culbertson on Saturday, Sept. 16.
