Kaster leads Clinton

PARK VIEW — Kim Kaster recorded another top-10 finish to lead the Clinton girls and Jonathan Facio had a breakthrough performance for the boys team Tuesday at the North Scott Invitational cross country meet at Scott County Park.

Kaster took sixth in 16 minutes, 1 second, running the course 1:10 faster than her time in the 2012 meet.

“We had some wonderful performances from Kim Kaster, as she medaled and ran a personal best on a pretty tough course,” Clinton coach Wes Golden said.

The River Queens didn’t have enough runners for a team score, but the River Kings claimed eighth in the boys varsity event.

Noah Buikema led Clinton with a 21st-place finish in 18:17, but Facio was just one place and three seconds behind.

“Jonathan Facio has been practicing really well and it is paying off in his races; he stepped it up and moved closer to the front as our number two runner,” Golden said.. “Ryan Day raced really well in the fresh-soph race, earning a medal (for 11th place).

“This was an important race to see where we stand with many of our MAC competitors. We certainly have some work to do, but the runners are up to the challenge.”



CLINTON — 21. Noah Buikema 18:17; 22. Jonathan Facio 18:20; 29. Michael Peters 18:38; 38. Hunter Genco 19:14; 39. Todd Broadrick 19:14; 41. Jace Houzenga 19:15; 46. Andre Dunlap 21:30.
