The Wolves continued to show progress in its most recent meet at the Pine City Invitational on Sep. 5 at the Pine City Country Club.
Head coach Dave Dillan had one goal for the team as they entered the season, to improve every day, and with each meet the team is able to do just that.
“We are slowly getting better, a lot of individuals were able to drop time from their previous race,” said Dillan.
Junior Brittany Hansen once again had a strong showing as she placed fourth in the field with a time of 21:05. Hansen was able to better her previous meet’s time by ten seconds.
Milaca girls’ varsity team did not field enough runners to receive a place in the meet.
For the varsity boys, Mason Voshell and Brody Pedersen placed 29th and 30th respectively as they ran times of 19:51 and 19:52. Dillan was pleased with the improvement by the boys’ team, but wants more. “I would like to see the back end of varsity drop their times,” said Dillan.
The Wolves placed ninth out of the 10 team field.
Kyle Haben won the boys meet with a time of 17:52 while Molly Novotny won on the varsity girls meet by running a 20:04. Haben and Novotny both run for Spectrum High School.
Landon Hasz and Kaylee Doffing were able to win the middle school races for Milaca.
Milaca will continue its season as they will race in the Little Falls Lucky Lindy Cross-country invitational on Sep. 12 followed by the Pierz Pioneer Stampede on Sep. 16.
