One final run for Ethan/Parkston's Lexy Leischner
Oct 17, 2017

Boy, what a big week it was for Parkston, and what a big week to come. 

 

Cross-country team: Well, the Ethan/Parkston girls slipped into the state tournament as a team but it wasn't easy as the Region 3A meet from Beresford was a TUFFIE! 

Girls team points: Beresford 33, Lennox, 43, E/P 47 and Vermillion 49. That is about as close as you can get and Jared Digmann's squad looks battle tested as they head for Rapid City for Saturday's state meet. 

Girls results: 

1 Savey, Cait               12 Beresford             19:18.54    1

  8 Ruud, Alicia               8 Lennox                21:27.07    8             
  9 Plucker, Emliy             7 Lennox                21:37.91    9

 12 Plastow, Adaya             9 Ethan/Parkston        21:49.67   11             
 13 Engbarth, Gabrielle        9 Beresford             21:51.19   12             
 14 Leischner, Lexy           11 Ethan/Parkston        21:58.76   13             
 15 Stark, Madison             8 Elk Point-Jefferson   22:06.77   14             
 16 Bogue, Laura               9 Beresford             22:17.91   15             
 17 Knutson, Katie            10 Beresford             22:20.04   16             
 18 Lentsch, Taryn             7 Ethan/Parkston        22:20.65   17             
 19 Brady, Megan               7 Vermillion            22:31.37   18             
 20 Endres, Jessica           12 Ethan/Parkston        22:34.61   19             
 21 Stark, Robin              10 Elk Point-Jefferson   22:37.48   20             
 22 Culbert, Maelie            8 Ethan/Parkston        22:37.55   21

While not expected to be one of the top contendors for the team title, Ethan/Parkston is one of those dangerous floaters. Roth should be up in the mix in the A race and EP's chanced for a plaque at the state meet depend how veterans Adaya Plastow and Lexy Leischner perform. 

TUFF break for Tucker Murtha

Well, trips to the state cross-country meet are coming for sophomore Austin Bartlet and senior Tanner Hohn. 
In order to qualify for the state meet, teams must finish in the top-3 of their region meet or individuals must
finish in the top-20.

E/P senior, Tucker Murtha did neither. Tucker finished in the unlucky spot of 
21st place, or the state meet by about eight seconds.

Good luck to E/P this week...Ton of stuff going on!!
