By Staff | Oct 14, 2008

HULL – Although the Estherville Lincoln Central/Armstrong-Ringsted boys cross country team placed at the bottom of the Lakes Conference standings, success isn’t necessarily measured by winning.

Phil Roach came in with ELCAR’s top finish, placing 40th in 19:38.

“Phil had his best race of the season,” said ELCAR coach Tina Burton. “He was relaxed and was passing people. All the guys finished the race well.”

Dan Kirchner was the next to cross the line with a 46th place finish in 20:20 while David Roach was 54th in 21:03, Scott Schmidt placed 55th in 21:32 and Jon Abrahamson was 56th in 21:46.

Spirit Lake Park won with 51 points followed by Western Christian with 73, LeMars with 79, Spencer with 90, Sheldon with 128, Emmetsburg with 136, Storm Lake with 143, Cherokee with 165 and ELCAR with 251.
