A four-peat was not to be, albeit by a slight margin for the Cedar Grove-Belgium High School boys’ cross country team on Saturday at Two Rivers.

The Rockets took second with 70 points to Kohler’s 66 in the Big East Conference meet.

“Had a couple of results gone our way, the team results would have been different, but that is why we discussed that every place matters, no matter if you are the No. 1 runner or the No. 7,” coach Brandon Langer said.

Junior Ben Fleuchaus was sixth in the 5,000-meter course, finishing in 18 minutes, 15 seconds. Senior Quinn Hoopman was ninth in 18:21. Both made the Big East’s first team.

Freshman Nathanael Bruhn was 16th in 18:58, and senior Andrew Reichert was 19th in 19:08, both making the second team. Sophomore Logan Ketterhagen was 20th in 19:12.75.

Langer said the team started well but lost ground in the second mile and in the final 1,000 meters. He will focus on that at practice in preparation for Saturday’s division 3 sectional meet at Manitowoc Lutheran.

Ozaukee’s boys scored 222 points and finished ninth of 11 teams.

Hayden Rice was 16th in 18:54 and made the second team. Matt Baldwin was 24th in 19:15. Tyler Mueller was 47th in 20:21. Mason Thill was 75th in 23:59. Brock Berend was 76th in 23:59.

Oostburg edges lady Warriors for title

Ozaukee’s girls took second with 47 points. Oostburg won with 39.

Kelley Large took second in 21:19, and Jenna Schueller was fifth in 22:08. Both made the first team.

Amy Hoffmann was 13th in 22:29. Ashlee Mueller was 14th in 22:39. Ally Clark was 16th in 22:46. All made the second team.

“Our girls followed their race strategies well and put themselves in position to battle for the conference title,” coach Andrew Pfeuffer said.

The Warriors next compete in the division 3 sectional at Lake Country Lutheran.

The lady Rockets took third with 55 points.

Senior Karen Ibarra won the race in 21:17, beating Large by less than three seconds.

“Karen stayed with the lead pack until the last 1,000 meters, where she put in a strong surge that the other two girls couldn’t cover. That is exactly what we envisioned happening, and it was great to see her execute it so well,” Langer said.

Senior Grace Voskuil was 10th in 22:27. Freshman Lyndsay Sass was 11th in 22:28. Sophomore Cheyenne Simonet was 16th in 22:49, and senior Katie Mueller was 17th in 22:56. Voskuil made the first team and the rest made the second.
