HARVEY COUNTY LAKE — Inman’s Nicholas Martisko continued his Top-5 running on Thursday by taking third in the Berean Academy Invitational Cross Country Meet.

Martisko, who earlier this season had back-to-back championships, ran an 18:04.66.

Also running for the Teuton boys were Nathan Bashore (16th in 19:18.35), Peter Buller (56th in 21:16.83), Connor Sivils (57th in 21:33.22), Jacob Harris (61st in 21:49.25), Nathan Enns (70th in 25:11.56) and Sean Smallcanyon (71st in 25:12.07).

Inman took seventh as a team.

Aisjha Miles was 15th in the girls race in 23:12.48 and Tia Cole was 48th in 28:23.4. Anra Ma was 20th in the JV race in 33:51.63.

“Everybody has heard the saying, “Good things happen to those who wait” and it came true,” Inman coach Jay Parsons said. “We waited for the heat, wind and rain to move out and got cool temperatures with a little wind, but you could still feel the warmth of the sun. Overall it was a great day to be competing. There were a lot of good runners at this meet. If I look at place I wasn’t sure how well each of them ran. However, once I look at times, I can honestly say they ran very well. I think all the runners still have more and can continue to improve their times.  The goal isn’t to peak quite yet. but each runner needs to show what he or she is capable of as the season draws to a close.”
