MANCHESTER – The Oelwein cross country team competed in the West Delaware meet held at Hart Ridge Golf Course on Tuesday.
“This was a difficult course with changing elevation throughout,” said Oelwein cross country coach Jason Gearhart. “Highly competitive meet, probably the best collection of runners we have seen all season. Brennan and Ray both ran well, sub-19 minutes. Ally Duffy ran one of her best times as well. Hopefully the weather cooperates for our meet Thursday at New Hampton.”
