The Jamestown High School girls cross country team finished 10th behind Maya Moltzen’s time of 16 minutes, 50 seconds at the Becki Wells Invite Saturday in Dickinson.
Moltzen finished 40th, three spots ahead off teammate Rachel Morin. Ligia Schultz placed 51st for the Blue Jays, who had a score of 324. Bismarck High won the meet with a 32, while Williston and Bismarck Century rounded out the top three with a 62 and 110, respectively. Lisbon was 11th with a 334.
Bismarck’s Brittany Brownotter finished in 14:41 to win the race.
The Blue Jay boys were led by Kyle Schumacher, who ran a 17:58 for 36th place. Jamestown took 11th with a 318, far behind champion Bismarck High, which had a 25. Century was second with 44 and West Fargo’s 103 was third.
Lisbon was 15th with a 410, but got a 21st-place finish from Jacob Gallagher (17:11). The race was won by Bismarck’s Preston Lerew in a time of 16:08.
The Blue Jays were without No. 1-ranked runner Alison Allmer, who missed the race to take her ACT test. Jamestown coach Ken Gardner said Allmer may not compete for a while because of “medical reasons.”
Jamestown is back in action on Saturday, when it travels to the Valley City Invite.
