2016 was a season of forward progress with huge improvements made by every athlete. A few special seniors helped to lead the way for the team this past fall in Savannah Shultz and Hunter Duncan. Our guys had a strong season with a few runners jockeying for a varsity spot all year long. Andy Johnson, Brayden Pritchard, Jonas Jensen, Aric Davis, Jacob Siepker, Jamison Schriever, and Hunter made up our Varsity squad to end the year at our district meet in Holstein where we just missed top 10 with an 11th place team finish of the 25 competing schools. They managed a 5th place finish at the conference meet as well. On the girls side of things, we fought the numbers battle all year long with our only scoring team being at conference where they ended up 6th.  Savannah Shultz, Rylee Wood, Alexis Myers, and Noelle Johnson made up our team for the majority of the year with Kendra Durbin stepping in late. Overall, we learned a lot as a team and are excited about the potential of next season with a few goals already in place. Our middle school boys also give us reason to anticipate the 2017 season with 3 of our scoring 5 runners moving up to the high school level next year, with Quinn Lachelt paving the way for the Cougars.  - Coach Theo Clark
