Wildcat Runners Compete Well at Herrin
Competing without three of their top five runners, Salem had an uphill battle from the outset. But freshman Christian Daniels paced the Lady Cats with a time of 20:52, which was good enough for eleventh place and earned her a medal. It was also the top time at Herrin by a Lady Cat runner in over five years. Cassie Bailey was second on the team with a time of 23:23, and took 26th place overall.
The Wildcats put two runners in the top ten and finished in third place overall. Brenner Webster took sixth place with a mark of 16:36. Freshman Caden Owens finished in tenth place with his time of 17:11. Two more Wildcats, Blake Quandt and Quintin Goostree narrowly missed out on medaling, with their 16th- and 17th-place finishes respectively.
The Salem cross country teams travel north on Saturday for the Peoria Invitational.
