Let's cross country (Web only)

Hutchinson's boys and girls cross country teams ran against tough competition at the Monticello Invite this past weekend and finished toward the back of the pack in their races.

The Hutch boys team eighth out of 11 squads and was led by Ben Becker, who also finished eighth overall. His teammate Gabe Stassen took 16th place for the Tigers, and the rest of the runners finish in the lower half of the race.

The girls team took last out of seven teams and was missing its young lead runner, Isabelle Schmitz. Lydia Gross, Bella Conn and Morgan Dean led the Tigers in her absence, finishing 26th, 27th and 28th, respectively.

Hutchinson's next race is its home invite at 4 p.m. Thursday at Lake Marion Park.
