Few but fast is Ozaukee’s hope

‘Small but mighty’ is the Warriors’ rallying cry

Thirteen runners are returning from last year’s two Ozaukee High School cross country teams, but the Warriors are only picking up three newcomers.

Junior Kelley Large is back to lead the girls after taking 24th at the state meet last season.

“She is looking to improve on her marks from last season and hopefully qualify again for state this year. She’s had a great summer of training that will hopefully pay off come late October and early November,” coach Andrew Pfeuffer said.

Three of the other top four finishers from last year’s sectional race, Jenna Schueller, Ashlee Mueller and Ally Clark, also return.

But Pfeuffer said the top five is wide open.

“We only have 10 girls, but they run in a very tight pack and any of them can lead on any day, which should make for a very fun season,” he said.

The boys have six runners, including last year’s top three, Matt Baldwin, Hayden Rice and Tyler Mueller.

“We have a small roster but they work extremely hard and I’m excited to see how they progress throughout the season,” Pfeuffer said.

Pfeuffer, also the school’s track and field coach, carried over that team’s motto of “small but mighty” to this year’s cross country squad.

The Warriors’ goals are to improve throughout the year and enjoy the sport while placing high in the Big East Conference and sending a couple of athletes to the state meet in October, he said.
