PABLO — On a day with few clouds in the sky, cross country teams gathered to run on the Silver Fox Golf course at the Salish Kootenai College on Saturday, Oct.7.

Polson head coach Matt Seeley helped organize the event. He said: “I want to thank all the teams who made it out for today’s event, and I want to thank the college for allowing us to run on their golf course.”

Seeley added that runners had a staggered start to vary the front runner in teams of 7. “The next runner gets the challenge of catching up to or passing their teammates so it adds a little bit of competition to the run”. 

Varsity runners also ran a 3.1 mile loop. 

In the girls’ race, Polson Pirate runner Morgan Delaney took first with a time of 20 minutes and 14 seconds while Isabel Seeley came in fourth with a time of 21 minutes and 19 seconds. David DiGiallonardo, of Polson, crossed the finish line at 17 minutes and 20 seconds. Jackson Bontadelli, of Polson, held a time of 17 minutes and 29 seconds.

During the free run event, the public was invited to run and try out the course, and participants could be heard laughing and saying, “I am not going to run. I don’t want to embarrass myself against all these kids.”
