    Huskies show improvement


    MIDDLEFIELD—Cardinal’s runners felt right at home on their home course during the 2019 Cardinal Invitational on Saturday.

    The Huskies turned in a solid performance in another tune-up for the postseason.

    “They keep getting better and working hard,” Cardinal coach Jennifer Fekete said. “There are great things coming for these athletes as we progress through the season.”

    Trevor Bachna was the Huskies’ top finisher as he placed 31st with a time of 19:07. Clayton Sauberan finished 94th in 23:51.

    “Our boys both crushed their season PRs respectively by 1 minute, 37 seconds and 1 minute, 56 seconds,” Fekete said.

    Jenna Ayer led the Cardinal girls with a time of 26:49, good for 85th place. Cassie Nguyen (99th, 28:05), Paxton Moore (114th, 31:14), Autumn Zak (116th, 31:29) and Hanna Neikirk (122nd, 35:42) also ran.

    “Our girls ran solid races while trying to stay healthy,” Fekete said. “We finally had a team of five running. We have been battling injuries or illnesses this season so it was very exciting to have them all able to run.”
