Oconomowoc cross country

Raccoons take second at Pete Nielsen Relays

Without Prom, Cooney runners still among elite

Chalk up another good day for Oconomowoc's varsity girls cross country team. In fact, considering the circumstances, the OHS girls had a great day.

Taking part in the Pete Nielsen Laser Relays at Naga-Waukee on Saturday, the Raccoons took second to state-ranked Waukesha West. The Wolverines, four times WIAA Division 1 state champion, won the large school title with a time of 1:19.52. Oconomowoc was a close second with a clocking of 1:20.25.

Cooney did all that without its No. 1 runner, junior Mandy Prom, who tried to run but had to drop out of the 4,000-meter race because of illness.

"We feel that the other kids picked up the slack and did good jobs," said Oconomowoc coach Mike Teofilo. "It was very pleasing to see the other girls step up and take control. Those other girls went out and did a good job on their own."

With Prom out, the remaining seven runners picked up the slack in the 13-school race. The trio of Abby Reier (2nd, 15:29), Olivia Radtke (4th, 15:34) and Molly Pearcy (7th, 15:54) all finished in the top seven spots.

Rounding out the scoring were Maddie Houston in 25th with a personal-best 16:38 and Carly Hall in 32nd at 16:48. Others competing for Cooney were Hannah Heidvogel in 40th at 17:04 and Lauren McVey 52nd at 17:38.

"Our kids are filling in the holes," Teofilo said. "Maddie Houston had her best race ever. Our depth is getting better and better all the time."

Tough day for OHS boys

The Oconomowoc boys team finished 12th among 12 teams in the Division 1 race. Cooney had a total time of 1:33.22. Milwaukee King won the team crown with a clocking of 1:22.50.

Sophomore Noah Brown took 19th place in the field of 89 runners with a time of 17:16.

Brown was followed by Joe Zak in 59th at 18:40, Greg Bruno 70th at 19:02, Tyler Carillo 73rd at 19:08 and Adam Shea 76th at 19:14. Other OHS runners were Jake Ullrich in 79th at 19:21, Brandon Buchholtz in 81st at 19:27 and Kenny Fenske 83rd at 19:48.
