Dawson County High School cross country runners (L to R) Ryleigh Mittelstaed, Julia Crighton and Abigail Stinnett run the dike at Eyer Park during the DCHS Cross Country meet held Friday. The meet was originally scheduled for Thursday but delayed because of weather.

The Lady Red Devils cross country team won their home meet on Friday and the boys team took second behind Galsgow.

Red Devil Coach Tom Temple was thrilled with his teams’ performances.

“I was really proud of how each and every Red Devil competed. All of them ran faster than their previous times and some by as much as two mintues,” he said.

The Lady Red Devils had four runners in the Top 10, the boys three runners in the top 10 placing

Sophomore Julia Crighton earned third place with freshman Abigail Stinnett close behind with fourth place. Ryleigh Mittelstaed took sixth and Kasidi Walker earned an eighth place finish.

Temple said the meet win by the girls was a “nice confidence boost” as was the boys’ finish at second.

Justin Skartved placed third for the Red Devils, followed closely by teammate Cody Harrington, who took fourth. Calob Grigsby earned sixth.

Temple added that his runners were great hosts for their home meet, showing up two hours before the race to set up the course and staying after to pick up equipment and garbage.

This week the Red Devil teams will travel to Sidney to compete on their most challenging course of the season.
