Alec Norem and Michael EnTin

Alberts 14th, Norem 53rd

  The Clarion-Goldfield-Dows cross country team continues its efforts to peak at this week’s conference meet and next week’s state qualifying meet. They are both on the Eagle Grove home course, so the annual Dick Bell Invitational served as a perfect opportunity to begin getting more familiar with a course they’ll see in those next two races.

  The Cowgirls took eighth as a team in class A, which was won by Gilbert with 38 points. Second place went to Spencer and third to Humboldt. Emmetsburg won class B.

  Kenzie Alberts had a nice day for the red and black, taking 14th in 17:07. Other varsity finishes were turned in by Samantha Nerem at 34th in 17:47, Claire Davis at 35th in 17:47, Cierra Milner at 51st in 19:24 and Courtney Studer at 53rd in 20:22. Running in the JV race, Megan Hoing was 54th in 22:54, Mollie Osterman 56th in 23:03 and Frances Kem 66th in 24:47.
