ELBURNâ€”On Tuesday, the Knights cross-country team built a nice block toward eventual success this season.
They built it on the strength of their feet.
Hosting Yorkville and East Aurora at Elburn Woods, the Knightsâ€™ 24 points outdid the efforts of the Foxes (58) and East Aurora (78).
â€œItâ€™s very early in our campaign, but we like what we see, and hopefully our depth will begin to shine as the calendar switches to October,â€ KHS coach Chad Clarey said.
The charge was led by Trevor Holm with a 16 minute, 43 second time. Teammate Clayton Brundige finished third at 17:49. Nate Rehkopf, with a 17:51 mark, finished fifth and Kanelandâ€™s John Meisinger took seventh at 18:20.
Kaneland travels to Peoria Woodruff for an invite on Saturday, Sept. 11.
