Center State Conference Championships
At the Center State Conference Championships Saturday, Sherburne-Earlville’s boys placed third overall with three league all-stars, and Sofeia Eddy was earned an all-star nod for the Marauders’ girls, who were 11th out of 18 schools.
Noah Huff placed third in the 96-runner field finishing in 17:46 to lead S-E. Dan Palmiter placed eighth in 18:41, and Dakota Nelson was tenth in 18:49. All three top-10 runners picked up the all-star nods. “The boys’ team defeated the winners of divisions one and three within the season, and today as well,” said S-E coach Anne Geary. “We are in division two, so that shows the league strength in our division. This boys squad is the best representation for S-E since I took over as coach in 1997.”
Jeff Verry was 30th in 20:09, and Ryan Palmiter was two spots back timing 20:19.
Gabby Huff and Erin Mahardy with 47th and 48th respectively for the girls timing 26:50 and 26:52. “Every athlete posted within seconds – or beat – their season personal-best times, which is a feat by itself,” Geary said. “I am extremely proud of this entire team.”
