Cross country season ends
By Michael Newton
The MFL MarMac Bulldog boys ran their state qualifier at North Fayette Valley on Thursday, Oct. 24. Sam Pfeiffer was the top Bulldog finisher, coming in 29th with a time of 18:32. Michael Melchert of Monticello won the 5k race at 15:45. The next Bulldog finisher was Tristen Kautman, who came in 44th with a 19:11 time. Brian Ayers was next at 20:12, which was good for 65th. Kordell DuCharme, in 84th place, ran in 21:53, and Ashton Houg, with a time of 22:16, was 86th. The Bulldog boys finished their season and said goodbye to seniors Sam Pfeiffer and Noah Schultz.
The Bulldog girls ran at the class 3A qualifier at Waverly/ Shell Rock because of the cross country agreement with Postville, so they are a class higher. No girls results were available, but the girls finished 13th out of 13 teams in the team standings. Two Postville runners, Katelyn Wedo and Maya Burke, will graduate this year.
