The Granville boys cross-country team took the top four spots, in what their coach described as an easy victory over Tamarac, in a dual meet on Tuesday, Sept. 24.
Junior Brandon Thomas had no difficulty winning the 3.1-mile race in a time of 18:37.
“He took the lead from the start and never looked back,” said Coach Sara Best-Twardy.
Thomas’ teammates Russell Ahlfeld (19:22), Ryan Dalaba (19:29) and Andy Williams (19:45) followed behind taking the number two, three and four spots ahead of Tamarac to clinch an easy victory.
Freshman Hollis Pauquette (21:25) placed eighth in the race.
“The team is getting better and better with each race. They work together well, and it’s fun to watch,” Twardy said.
Other finishers included Dustin Smith in ninth at 22:13, Justin Williams for eleventh at 22:37, Dennis Duffy at twelfth at 23:28, Max Juckett in thirteenth 24:29, Grant Gallagher in fourteenth at 24:33 and Scott Watrous taking fifteenth place at 25:47.
