Glenwood cross country has been running full speed over the past two weeks. The boys  team traveled to Creston and left with team victories. Junior Mason Parks won the individual title while junior Parson Covington placed third, and sophomore Sam Mcintyre came in seventh.

The Rams competed with stiff competition at the Harlan cross country meet, and came in second behind Thomas Jefferson. Covington finished fourth, Parks sixth, McIntyre 14th, freshman Tyler Huey 26th, junior Gable Thompson 32nd, and Senior william Ingles 50th.

In Shenandoah Glenwood came in third, with a 75-75 tie being broken by Lewis Central’s combined time, which was six seconds faster than the Rams’ time. Parks once again finished sixth, Covington eighth, Thompson 14th, Huey 25th, Mcintyre 27th, junior Jayden Brooks 52nd, and sophomore Brendan Godbout at 57th.  

“Our team goals are to qualify for state, finish top three in our district, and win our conference both varsity and junior varsity,” said Head Coach Todd Peverill.

The team has seen significant growth throughout the year. Peverill said, “We are doing about how we thought we would, some were behind in the beginning of the year but they catching up, and our 4-12 guys are starting to mix and get really competitive with each other.”

The boys will start postseason racing this week when they travel to Clarinda for the Hawkeye Ten meet Thursday.
