ELBING — Inman’s Caleb Renner continues to look like a runner that has a great chance of qualifying for the state cross country meet.
Renner maintained his high standards on Thursday by taking seventh place in the Berean Academy Invitational in 18:15.5.
“Caleb turned in another good performance,” Inman coach Jay Parsons said. “I did not realize that his time was as quick as it was until I looked at the results. Caleb even mentioned to me he didn’t feel like it was, either. However, he said he was pleased because he ran more consistently throughout the race than he had at other meets.”
Other runners for the Teutons were Tobias Belknap (21st in 19:55.8) and Max Harman (44th in 25:58.8). It was the second-fastest time of the year for both runners.
Keaton Case ran in the JV race, his first competition of the year. He was eighth in 20:40.
Inman had a pair of runners in the girls varsity. Kylee Baumann was 37th in 21:45.8, while Kirstin DeVore was 39th in 23:50.2. “Both of these girls are freshmen, but I am encouraged with how much they have improved in running times that are more consistent,” Parsons said.
