The Willmar cross country teams competed at the large Alexandria Lions Invitational on Saturday and did well, with the girls winning and the boys taking third out of 22 teams.
The girls defeated Marshall, who beat them at their home invitational last week. Jessa Hanson led the Cardinals by placing third overall in 18:37.5, while Kayla Rudie and Sophie Schmitz also provided top-10 finishes in under 19 minutes.
Alexandria’s Bethany Hasz claimed the individual title in 18:00.7.
This is especially impressive considering the Cardinals have yet to reach full strength due to health.
The Willmar boys put together a strong finish in a tough field as well, notching three top-15 finishes.
Nadir Yusuf was the runner-up to Stillwater’s Eli Krahn, putting up a time of 16:06.1. Mohamed Noor finished fourth in 16:14.0 and Ian Thompson 13th in 16:45.2.
