The Beloit Country Club course lived up to its reputation for speed, for whatever reason to be debated, on Thursday, September 27, when the Southern Cloud Cross Country Warriors showed so well in the Beloit Invitational, that each runner will now get a paragraph:

Freshman Dusty Mason, in the JV Boys' race, medaled in the 3rd position, and set his personal record for time, in the 5K distance that Kansas high schoolers run, at 19:57, which is 49 seconds below his previous best.

Freshman Taylor Cox, in the Girls' Varsity, lowered her PR by get this---3 minutes and 58 seconds! It's down to 26:54 now for her, with her 53rd place finish at Beloit.

Not far behind in a lowering of time, this instance a season best, was sophomore Shea McMillan, who hacked off 3 minutes and 40 seconds from her previous best time in 2018. She finished in 58th in the varsity girls, with a time of 27:15.

Freshman Mallory Bellows hammered away at her PR, dropping it 2 minutes and 9 seconds, in her 62nd place finish in varsity girls, and time of 27:46.

Another PR, by a sophomore this time, turned in by Morgan Coleman, shaving his career-best time down by 52 seconds, to finish in 22:17 in the JV Boys' race.

Yet another PR, Nevyn Gold, 37th in the JV Boys, carved 31 seconds away from this best time, down now to 25:56.

Senior Carson Bellows, 70th in the varsity boys, took two minutes exactly, off his season best time, coming home in 22:05.

Senior Avery Wyatt bested his finest time for the 2018 season by 1:59, for his 79th place finish in the varsity boys', in 23:41.

Senior Ryan Paillet had a season-best time of 22:53, for his 74th-place varsity boys' finish, and came oh so close to his career PR, missing it by a mere 2 seconds.

Senior Jocelyn Buller, in a tremendously tough field of varsity girls, that included possible Top 10 finishers in next month's State meets, in Class 1A from Lincoln, Class 2A from Bennington and Minneapolis, Class 3A from Beloit, AND Class 4A from Abilene, finished in an extremely respectable 22nd place position within that loaded field, in 23:22. It was, by 36 seconds, a new season-best for Buller.
