STERLING –The cold weather has arrived, but he show must go on. The Inman High School cross country team had a record-breaking performance its runners on Thursday at the Sterling Invitational.
Nicholas Martisko was once again Inman's top finisher after taking second with a school-record of 16:28.5, only falling behind to Tanner Lindahl of Buhler High School, who timed in 16:01.06. Peter Buller was 52nd with the time of 18:58.8.
Hannah Martisko also broke the school record for the girls with the time of 22:02.3, placing her 32nd.
"I can honestly say it wasn't the weather, very cold and windy, but I do think the combination of a fast course and tough competition was just what the runners needed," Inman Head coach Jay Parsons said. "Four of the five runners that competed at Sterling set a personal record for themselves. I know that regardless of the outcome (place), the runners made the best of it and competed well. All the runners have made tremendous improvement since the first of the season and especially in the last few weeks (races). The goal now is to carry that effort (time) into the league meet next week."
The Teutons will have a league meet at Trinity Catholic next Thursday at 4:30 p.m.
