The fall sports season is starting to wine down with only a few weeks left. Kimball Cross Country was in action in Gothenburg last Thursday Sept. 28.

"All seven of these young men ran their season best times," said Coach Tiffany Johnson.

Kaden Adrian ran his personal best time over all four years a time of 19:07, Garrett Pedersen had a time of 20:11, Nicholas Thomas-Lewis with a 20:20, Brady Kilgore ran a 21:08, Cole Henton had a 22:42, followed by Jordan Cluff with a time of 23:55 and Alex Flores with a 24:13.

Brandi Councilman ran her personal best time of 25:15, and Kaylyn Nelson ran a time of 32:29.

For Junior High girls, Chantel Malson placed ninth with a time of 12:59, Caelyn Long placed fourteenth with a time of 13:06, Anabela Whitehead followed with a time of 15:24, Maddison Merryfield with a time of 16:51, Louise Tambanillo had a time of 16:53 and Alycia Vrbas with a time of 20:53.

Junior High boys results had Trey Schindler on top for Kimball with a 13:42, Matthew Johnson was right on his heels with a time of 13:43, James McGinnis ran a time of 15:14, Xavier Thomas-Lewis with a 16:32, Gideon Casimiro had a time of 16:52.

Johnson thought the meet went really well, "We were proud of how our kids ran, we feel they competed hard. They made some adjustments to the course from previous years, but I feel that they improved the course."

Coach Johnson and her team are looking forward to this week as they have two meets, one today, Thursday, as well as, one tomorrow, Friday. Kimball Cross Country will run today at 4 in Grant for SPVA and then Friday morning at 11 in Mitchell for WTC.

The Longhorn runners will be getting ready to head to Bayard for districts next week on Oct. 12.
