Red Cloud 7th-grader Ecoffey aiming for high podium finish at Class A cross

Red Cloud 7th-grader looking for podium finish at Class A cross

It has been a season of discovery for Red Cloud 7th-grader Jade Ecoffey. This young lady won the Lakota Nation individual title on Sep. 30 and has done nothing but improve since then. At the Region 5A meet in Belle Fourche (Hilly course), Ecoffey came home in 5th place against some stellar runners from Hill City and Custer. 

1 Simmons, Karlee           11 Hill City             19:47.09    1             
  2 Cooper, Kaci              10 St. Thomas More       19:58.00    2             
  3 Delmont, Mallory          10 Custer                20:07.48    3             
  4 Hohn, Marion              12 Hill City             20:41.90    4             
  5 Ecoffey, Jade              7 Red Cloud             20:43.50    5             
  6 Hanka, Janean             11 Hill City             20:48.98    6             
  7 Escalante, Lizzy          10 Hill City             20:56.18    7             
  8 Dooley, Kadense            8 Custer                20:58.75    8             
  9 Carlson, Tayler           12 Custer                21:14.61    9             
 10 Glazier, Tori             12 Custer                21:20.20   10   
The four ladies in front of Ecoffey, Simmons, Cooper, Delmot and 
Hohn are all ladies that are expected to contend for top-10
performances at the state meet. So deep was the field at the 
Region 5A meet that 10th place went to Tori Glazier, the five-time
state champion at 800 meters.

And so, it is with that in mind that Ecoffey will be aiming for a 
podium finish at today's state meet in Rapid City. Top-15 would be
phenomenal as the top-25 earn medals at the state meet. 
Also qualifying for the state meet from Red Cloud was junior
Tierra Baird. 
Good luck to Russ Cournoyer and ladies as they run early this 

RED Cloud boys to face Woonsocket/Wessington Springs/Sanborn
After roughing up Lead/Deadwood 40-7 in the first round of the
11B playoffs, Duane Big Crow's Red Cloud Crusaders were seeded
No. 6 in the 11B quarters and will travel to take on No. 3 seed
Woonsocket/Wessington Springs/Sanborn Central in Wessington 
Springs on Thursday, Oct. 26. 

WWSSC came from behind in the waning moments of their first-round 
game with MVP to win that game 13-10. WWSSC lost to Bridgewater
Ethan/Emery early in the season but are 8-1 heading into their 
game with Red Cloud. 

Red Cloud volleyball at Alliance Tournament today:
Region 7Seed PointsW-L
Pine Ridge 42.44 21-6
Winner 41.59 15-7
Little Wound 39.82 11-11
Red Cloud 39.41 12-15
Bennett County 39.28 10-15
Todd County 36.96 7-20
St. Francis Indian 35.71 4-20

Coming into the home stretch of the regular season for
volleyball. As it stands right now, Red Cloud would host 
Bennett County in the first round but the Warriors are close 
in power points. Red Cloud is at a tourney in Alliance NE
today and finishes the regular season vs. Hill City on Monday.
