KANELAND—Kaneland boys cross-country might not miss a step for a long while.
With 20 points, compared to West Chicago’s 48 points and Wheaton Academy’s 65, the Knights got off to a productive start, making coach Chad Clarey pleased.
“Our varsity boys got out quickly through the first mile, packed up and raced very well on a perfect night for running. We are encouraged with where we are heading at this early point in the season,” Clarey said.
Racing his first varsity competition, Miroljub Marin aced the field with a time of 17 minutes, 18.7 seconds, edging teammate John Meisenger who finished in 17:19.56.
After Marcus Delatorre of West Chicago took third, Conor Johnson of Kaneland finished fourth at 17:35.2, while teammate Nate Rehkopf took fifth at 17:38.
The next challenge for boys cross-country takes place on Tuesday, Sept. 6, against East Aurora and Yorkville.
