Camanche cuts loose


“When I finally did pass him, I just figured that was a good time to go,” said Kaczinski, who also won the 3,200. “I knew the Tipton guy was going to go out fast. He’s a great runner, so I just did my best to stay with him and push when I needed to push.”

While Rebels coach Mike Mattis said he wished for better overall results, he praised Kaczinski’s performance as one of the night’s most exciting races.

“Eli had a great night. He’s a smart guy,” Mattis said. He also commended Camanche on its stellar performance.

“We’re getting used to (second place) unfortunately,” Mattis added. “Camanche is really good.”

The event showcased several district and conference foes who could stand in the way of a Rebel bid to state. Mattis said the results indicated to him where his team needed to go before the season wrapped up.
