HIBBING – The Ely boys cross country team was edged by Proctor at the Hibbing Invitational last week. The Timberwolves finished second, right behind first-place Proctor.

The girls team was also edged out, finishing with 117 points to Proctor’s 116 points, for second place. International Falls took first among the girls with 99 points.

“We finally had good weather for the meet, but it was windy,” said Ely Head Coach Jayne Dusich.

The Ely boys were led by Luke Olson, who finished second overall with a time of 16:47.3 on the 5K course. Faltesek, finished eighth with a time of 17:43.3, followed by Jasper Johnston, 12th, 18:03.4; Pointer, 27th, 18:57.3; Ethan Bremner, 39th, 19:27.0; Dylan Fenske, 41st, 19:38.1; and Harry Simons, 50th, 19:51.8.

“While most had a good race, Emmett and Gabriel did not feel that great running,” Dusich said. “Not every one always has a good day. They know what they can do when feeling good.”

Carlton-Wrenshall finished third with 128 points, followed by Virginia, 147, Cromwell-Floodwood, 153, International Falls, 176, Eveleth-Gilbert, 181, Mountain Iron-Buhl, 187, Crosby-Ironton, 199, and Esko, 225, in the top ten.

Freshman runner Zoe Devine paced Ely runners with a time of 21:18.9 for ninth place. Other Ely girls’ place and times included Phoebe Helms, 15th , 22:13.0; Sydney Durkins, 17th, 22:23.6; Sarah Isbell, 36th, 23:34.1; Laura Holmstrom, 40th, 24:12.3; Julia Schwinghamer, 43rd, 24:26.5; and Cora Olson, 55th, 24:53.5.

“The girls are doing very well improving their times this week,” Dusich said. “Sydney had an awesome race placing 17th and improved her time by a minute, close behind Phoebe who also dropped time.”

South Ridge finished in fourth place with 143 points, and Virginia rounded out the top five teams with 141 points.

Following this week’s home meet at the Ely Golf Course, the Timberwolves head to Duluth on Saturday, Oct. 5 for the Swain Invite, and to International Falls on Tuesday, Oct. 8.
