Greenlee paces Hornets at Madison

Kirtland Cross Country

Freshman Reilly Greenlee finished 25th overall to pace the Kirtland cross country teams at Madison’s U Wanna Come Back Invitational on Saturday.

“Reilly missed our all-time top 25 by five seconds and our top five girls are running very well heading into the championship part of the season,” said Kirtland coach JP Moran. “We just need to close down our gap/spread between No. 1 and Nos. 5-7.”

Greenlee finished in 21:01.

Julie Namciu finished 35th in 21:27 and Emily Crebs was 69th with a time of 22:38. Aimee Baldrey and Mateja Mrva rounded out Kirtland’s top five.

Baldrey finished in 23:11 while Mrva came in with a 24:05.

Konnor Duncan led the Kirtland boys with a time of 18:49, good for 58th place overall. Ian McGreal was 83rd in 19:27 and Nick Briggs finished in 19:35.

“Konnor is running well going into October,” Moran said. “Ian had another solid performance. I’m excited to put it all together in October.”
