Albia boys, DC girls claim SCC crowns

BLOOMFIELD — The Albia boys and the Davis County girls came away with team championships Tuesday at the South Central Conference cross country meet, held at Lake Fisher in Bloomfield.

“Overall, that’s best finish we’ve ever had,” said Davis County coach Josh Husted.

“We were really excited to be able to get the team title,” said Albia coach Todd Ratliff. “The boys been working hard all season, our athletes stepped up, and I was very proud of their effort.”

The Blue Demon boys were led by Colton Dorpinghaus’ individual title as they posted a team score of 36 to hold off the young Davis County Mustangs, who scored 52 team points. In the girls’ race, Davis County’s Chandra Smith claimed her third straight SCC individual crown as the Mustangs took three of the top four places on the way to the team crown. Davis County had 29 points to second-place Albia’s 58.

“Our kids really liked the course,” said Ratliff. “It was an old-fashioned cross country course.”

Dorpinghaus posted a time of 17:10 to outrun Centerville’s Payton Busch (17:39), who has been battling an injury.

“Colton had a strategy and executed that very well,” said Ratliff. “Busch is such an outstanding runner, we hope he recovers completely from his injuries and gets himself to state.”

Christopher Welch of Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont placed third in a time of 17:51. Albia’s J.D. Anderson placed fourth while Mason Cox was sixth. Davis County had two runners in the top 10, as Zach Hougland placed fifth while Justin Vollmer was seventh. Clay Roberts placed 11th for the Mustangs, ahead of Albia’s Aaron Ambrose and Tyler Pasut, who were 12th and 13th.

“When you consider that we have one junior and the rest are all freshmen and sophomores, you have to be happy with the way our boys have been competing,” said Husted. “There is a boatload of potential for our future.”

Centerville’s Nic McCann was ninth while E-B-F’s Hunter Wilz placed 10th.

In the girls’ race, Smith’s first-place time was 16:07, well ahead of Centerville’s Cassidy Schacher (16:45). Mustangs Addie McKee and Ally McClure were third and fourth, while Maggie Hougland finished 10th.

“Chandra just took off,” said Husted. “Its her senior year, and she was committed to winning her third straight conference championship.”

Albia saw Michelle Manser, Kim Teno and Kristyn Garver  finish fifth, sixth and seventh. E-B-F’s Emily Flaig finished ninth.

Both Albia and Davis County will compete at Chariton on Thursday. Then they’ll see each other again, a week later, at the regional meet at Columbus Junction.

“All season long Davis County and Albia have been going at it,” said Husted. “It’s a great rivalry. Both teams have pushed each other to get better.”

“The kids from the two programs get along really well,” agreed Ratliff. “Every day our girls are trying to get closer to the Davis County girls, so the programs have been very good for each other this season.”
