Tanagers run great races in Lennox

By Scott Bormann

On a cool, dry day in Lennox, the top runners for the Tanagers had great races. The girls’ team was lead again by Madisen Lavin, who won the race in 14:35. She beat hometown favorite, Maisey Bainbride by 16 seconds. Britney Sweeney and Caitlin Britten finished 54th and 55th in 19:42 and 20:16 respectively. Vermillion required a fourth runner to finish the race in order to earn a team score.

“Maddie Lavin ran a beautiful race,” said Coach Kelly Fischbach, “her most complete race of the season.”

The boys’ race had enough Tanagers to earn a team score, even though it was 12th place. The race was won by Graham Bacon of Dakota Valley in 17:00, six seconds ahead of Caleb DeWeerd from Sioux Falls Christian. The Tanagers earned a team score of 204 by having Justin Sorensen finish 42nd in 19:02, Joe Swanson in 53rd place in 19:39, Kevin Helenurm in 62nd place in 20:34, Justin Bendesky in 74th place in 23:25.5, Bless Vargas in 75th place in 23:37.

“Justin Sorensen had a good race as well,” said Fischbach, “recording his season best. He has a good shot to qualify for state if he has a good race.”

Next up for these teams is the inaugural Dakota XII Conference meet at 4 p.m. on Thurday, Oct. 10, in Elk Point. The following Thursday, the 17th, will see them competing in Lennox again for the Regions. For any and all that qualify, the state meet will be in Rapid City on Saturday, Oct. 26.
