Tigers run against mixed bag in the cold Tech Invite

Readying for the Oct. 16 Granite Ridge finals, the Princeton girls cross country team placed 7th and the boys were 8th at the Oct. 9 St. Cloud Tech Invite.

The St. Cloud Cathedral boys and the Willmar girls won the team titles at the invite.

PHS Coach John Auel: “The Girls team put up a total team time that was a 1:27 faster than any other time record by five girls in my coaching period.  Sam and Maddy Jung were our one-two punch that really helped us drop the time while the other girls were trying to keep the pack tight together. For the boys Ryan kept up his normal race with being the only runner to receive a medal.  He was out hard to beat our school record but fell 20 seconds short. The wind was too strong.”
