GUTHRIE CENTER - The Colo-NESCO boys just missed out on advancing a runner to state at the Class 1A qualifying meet in Guthrie Center Friday.

Royal senior Jacob Reischauer came within five seconds of qualifying for state. The top 10 runners and top two teams advance to state in 1A and Reischauer placed 13th in the boys’ race.

Reischauer’s 5-kilometer time of 18 minutes, 41.27 seconds was just 4.83 seconds behind the 10th-place and final qualifying time by East Marshall’s Hunter Hughlette. 

But despite coming up a tad short Royal head coach Tony Stalzer was proud of his effort and that of all his runners both the boys’ and girls’ teams.

“The kids ran hard and we had really good times today,” Stalzer said. “The improvement is all I could ask of the kids.”

The Colo-NESCO boys placed eighth out of 13 teams with exactly 200 points. Adair-Casey/Guthrie Center won the meet with 48 points, East Marshall was second with 73 as the other team to qualify for state.

Ryan Wonders placed 27th in 20:17.14 as the second Royal to finish the boys’ race. Ben Rouse came in 48th at 20:49.48, Alex Rouse 53rd at 21:07.89 and Drew Banks 58th in 21:21.09 to complete the scoring for Colo-NESCO.

Chevy Dunlap ran a 21:29.20 to take 61st as the sixth Royal runner to finish. Brad Thomas also ran varsity, taking 79th in 22:58.29.

Tri-Center’s Brett McGee, ranked 29th in 1A, won the boys’ individual title at the meet with a time of 17:29.41. ACGC’s Trevin Suhr, ranked 21st, was second in 17:29.41.

In the girls’ competition Colo-NESCO placed 12th with 274 points. ACGC also won the girls’ championship with 51 points and Montezuma was the other team to qualify with 78 points.

Callie Kohlwes was the first runner for the Colo-NESCO girls to cross the finish line. Kohlwes finished with a 5k time of 24:21.87 to place 35th. 

Hannah Jamison came in 54th at 25:33.08 and freshman Annabelle Nessa stepped up with a 64th-place time of 26:35.44. Katie Spalding was right behind Nessa in 65th place with a 26:53.78 showing and Sarah Brinkman also scored points with a 69th-place time of 27:38.04.
