Glasgow Middle School girls win Sidney Invitational

Glasgow's middle school girls team won the Sidney Invitational cross country meet on Saturday, dominating a competitive field on the longest, toughest, and wettest course so far this year. The Glasgow boys took fifth place as a team.

The Scottie girls totaled 36 team points to finish ahead of host Sidney and complete teams from Wolf Point, Glendive, and Frontier School. Runners on the 3-kilometer (1.8-mile) course represented 15 schools in all. Glasgow was paced by 8th grader Kimber Dulaney, who has led the team in each of the season's seven races. She finished second with a time of 12:53. Seventh-grader Haleigh Huntsman took 8th place in 14:08, and 8th grader Josie Kemp took 10th place in 14:10. Glasgow's other scorers were 8th grader Caylen Jankowski, who took 18th place in 15:00, followed closely by 7th grader Jensina Tweten, 20th place in 15:01.

Other Scottie runners included a trio of 7th graders: Rebekah Bailey, 35th place in 17:01; Aspen Probert, 42nd in 18:46; and Karsyn Page, 49th in 20:22.

The Scottie boys finished with 92 team points, behind host Sidney, Glendive, Miles City, and Plentywood. Sixth-grader Garrett Thompson continued to pace the GMS squad, finishing in 8th place in 13:06. Seventh-grader Rowen Kloker took 20th place with a 13:47 effort, followed by a trio of Glasgow 6th graders: Jack Milam, 33rd in 15:15; Aaron Mickelson, 42nd in 17:38; and close behind, Alex Earll, 43rd in 17:42.

Sidney hosted a separate elementary race for runners in 4th and 5th grades, and Glasgow was represented by Holt Huntsman, who took 6th place on the 2-kilometer (1.24-mile) course in 10:46; Harper Wesen, 15th in 12:47; and Amani Probert, 16th in 13:05.

Races took place on the Sidney Country Club golf course, which features a half-mile-long hill at the start. The weather deteriorated as the Scotties started racing, and most runners were drenched by the end. GMS coach Andrew McKean was impressed with the Scotties' response to the longer-than-normal course, conditions, and challenging terrain.

"We've been training all season for just such a day," says McKean, "one that really pushes our kids beyond their comfort level. They responded remarkably well."

McKean singled out Dulaney for her tenacity, but noted that both Haleigh Huntsman and Josie Kemp pushed the lead pack and were responsible for the team victory, along with fellow scorers Caylen Jankowski and Jensina Tweten for top places. On the boys side, Garrett Thompson and Rowen Kloker pushed the hilly conditions for excellent times and places.
