Washington cross country opened its season Saturday at the Lafayette Invitational and had three varsity runners earn medals.

Medalists were senior Travis Elbert, who finished 10th in the boys race with a time of  17:12, and sophomores Josie Plowman and Ashton Leslie, who finished 14th in 22:24 and 25th in 24:07 in the girls race, respectively.

“Picking up three varsity medalists was a strong start, but just as important were the number of kids who picked up where they left off last season,” said Washington Head Coach Mike Olszowka. “We have a good nucleus of varsity runners and they are doing a great job of bringing our younger runners along.”

The girls varsity team finished fifth in the team standings.

In addition to Plowman and Leslie, Cheyenne Leslie finished 33rd in 24:48, Alex Ready came in 36th in 25:15, Kassy Briggs was 38th in 26:23 and Lexi Geisert was 41st in 27:22.

The boys varsity team finished seventh overall in the meet.

Along with Elbert, the Blue Jays had Tate Kitchell finish 26th in 18:18, Parker Neptune was 43rd in 19:18, Josh Luck in 53rd in 19:55 and Jacob Huxol in 54th in 20:01.

The junior varsity girls finished third in the team standings and the JV boys finished 10th.

Washington’s JV girls runners were Brandy Huyser (17th), Anna Krafft (18th), Riley Johnson (22nd), Leah Krafft (23rd), Kailey Fortner (28th), Kelsey Sullentrup (31st), Morgan White (34th), Ashley Gratzer (43rd), Erin Ready (46th), Leah Whitworth (47th) and Lauren Kopp (49th).

Washington’s JV boys were led by medalist Daniel Lock, who finished ninth.

Also running were Clayton Duchatschek (39th), Cody Kedroski (87th), Joe Omer (88th), Neil Landers (101st) and Scott Klein (136th).

“We were extremely happy with the kids’ efforts,” Olszowka said. “We have been training pretty hard, so I believe that made the heat a non factor for us.”
