The Mifflin County Middle School Boys’ Cross Country team wrapped up their fall season with an hard fought third place finish at Lock Haven University’s “Meet of Champions”.
The two mile foot race had 14 teams represented from across Pennsylvania with 90 boys finishing.
Dallastown (44 points) took first, Pine-Richland second (61) and Mifflin County placed third (80).
Individually, Benjamin Farbman took top honors in a new course record of 10:14.
Leading the Husky pack was Wyatt Kauffman 9th (11:20), then Koy Aurand 15 (11:31), Aidan Scavitti 22 (11:44), Hoyt Rodenbaugh 27 (11:50), as Camryn Treaster 29 (11:53) closed the MC scoring. An impressive :33 second 1-5 scoring gap propelled the Huskies to their third place trophy.
“This is an amazing group of young men.  Our top man Wyatt wasn’t at 100% but still managed a top ten finish. Koy and Aidan have been a consistent 2-3 for us,” said MIfflin County coach Gregory Loht. “ After some early season troubles Hoyt is back to form. Camryn continues to be our anchor holding things together at five.”
Logan Breneman finished 57 (12:40), Anthony Palopoli 59 (12:54), Colton Leister 65 (13:26), Justin Cox 77 (14:18), Oaklan Smith 81 (15:26)and Bernardo Tovar 89 (20:51).
“Our rookies love to compete. The youngsters finished on a high note and gained invaluable experience this fall. Logan, Anthony, Colton, Justin, Oaklan and Bernardo all ran nice races. On a near perfect day for fall cross country racing, with clear blue skies and a chill in the air it was a great way to end the season. With three finishers in top 25, our scorers all in the top 30, Hollywood couldn’t have written a better ending.”
