Triton’s boys and girls cross country teams got underway Thursday with a triangular with conference mates North Judson and Knox at Potawatomi Wildlife Park. The Triton girls and North Judson boys were victorious.
Triton’s girls scored 31 points to best North Judson’s 43 and Knox’s 47 points. Baylee McIntire paced the field with a 22:15, running without a challenger with over a minute between her and Blue Jay Amanda Krzyzanowski, a 23:38 finisher in second place.
Triton’s Aimee Gladiuex was fourth at 25:10, Abigail Powell in fifth at 25:19 and Michaela Best seventh at 25:41. Alysha May rounded out the Triton times with a 30:10.
The boys race was abbreviated due to neither Triton or Knox fielding a full team. Triton did have two of the top three times, with Bailey Watkins winning the race at 18:58 and Shaun Honeycutt third at 20:01, sandwiching Knox’s Seth Hernandez at 19:12.
Brock Watkins finished at 22:34 and Brendan Ray timed 23:38 to conclude the Triton times.
Triton’s next scheduled event is Saturday at the NorthWood Invite.
