El Dorado Springs girls’ cross country runners pose together before heading to the starting line.

Sophomore Daelen Ackley of El Dorado Springs was the individual winner of the Class 2 boys division at the Southwest Cross Country Coaches Association Richard Clark Invitational, Saturday, Sept. 7, in Bolivar.

Ackley crossed the line in 16:00.91, more than 50 seconds ahead of his nearest competitor and breaking his own school record from a year ago.

The victory helped propel the Bulldogs to a third-place finish in the team standings at 81 points, six ahead of fourth-place Stockton. Colby Adams was the highest finishing Tiger in 18:32.40.

In Class 2 girls, El Do and Fatima tied for first place at 40 points, but Fatima was declared the winner by having the higher-placing sixth runner.

Hannah Klaiber led the Lady Bulldogs with a third-place time of 21:19.81. Stockton’s Shanae Potts was 10th in 23:09.64.

“Overall, both teams ran well,” El Do coach Brian Goatley said. “It was nice to finally run a meet, so we could really find out where we are at. They competed well, and hopefully came out with a little confidence to help boost them through to a great season.”

“I thought the team competed pretty well as a whole, but we all know there's plenty of work to be done and we'll only get better from here on out,” Stockton coach T.Jay Sanderson said.

Both Stockton and El Do next compete at the Cottey College Invitational, starting at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 14, at Frank E. Peters Municipal Golf Course, 17320 E. Quail Road, Nevada.
