Osceola Shines at the 2022 MCIAC Middle School Cross Country Championships

The Osceola boys and girls teams emerged victorious at the 2022 MCIAC Middle School cross country championships sweeping the individual and team titles in both races on Tuesday evening.

The day started off with the boy’s 3k. From the gun, the 8th-grade duo of Alex Lammens and Jacob Rogers, from Osceola, went straight to the front. They were followed closely by 6th grader Christopher Taylor of Howard. The early pace, however, proved to be a little too quick as Alex and Jacob pulled away before the first mile. By the end of the race, Lammens emerged victorious with Rogers taking the runner-up position. Taylor held on for 3rd place, with Edward Zinnie of Osceola and Zade Hamed of Howard rounding out the top 5. The Osceola boys won the team competition with a team score of 20 points, Howard finished 2nd with 60 points, and rounding out the top 3 was Belleview Middle in 3rd with 70 points. 

The girl’s race played out similarly to the boy’s race as a pair of Osceola 6th graders, Lyla Hallick and Natalie Lammens, jumped to the front at the start. They were followed closely by the 7th grader from Belleview Middle, Kendal Davis. After an opening mile of under 6:50, Lyla put distance on her Osceola teammate and went on to win by almost 19 seconds. Natalie held on to finish 2nd with Kendal finishing in third. Alanna Doyle from Howard and Maylee Blackwood finished 4th and 5th respectively. Osceola took the team competition with a score of 37 points, Howard placed second with 71 points, and Fort McCoy rounded out the top 3 with 76 points.
