Bulldog teams third at CIML meet

DES MOINES — The Ottumwa boys and girls cross country teams both came away with third-place team finishes on Tuesday at the CIML Metro Conference meet, held in Des Moines.

The Bulldog boys had two top 10 finishers in Cody McConnell and Charlie Altfillisch, while the girls Daylin Latham finish 10th and Caroline Owens place 12th — good enough for both to earn all-conference accolades.

Indianola and Des Moines Roosevelt finished first and second in both meets, which was a surprise to no one.

“I was pleased overall,” said Ottumwa coach Jeff Smith. “All the teams finished about where we figured they would. Roosevelt and Indianola were even stronger than I thought they would be.”

“We knew Indianola and Roosevelt have very strong programs, so that was definitly the place we were looking for,” said Ottumwa girls coach Angela Chaney.

The Indianola boys won with 26 team points, ahead of Roosevelt’s 57. The Bulldogs were third with 74 points. Indianola’s Jordan Schulze was the individual champion with a time of 16:06, while Ottumwa’s McConnell placed second at a clip of 16:24, nine seconds in front of Roosevelt’s Grant Suttie. Altfillisch’s time of 16:58 — breaking 17 minutes — earned him sixth place.

 “Both Cody and Charlie improved on their times from when they ran this same course five days ago, so I was glad to see that,” said Smith.

Collin McConnell (18:18) placed 20th for Ottumwa, while Shane Riley (19:04) was 22nd. Jianwa Bennett placed 24th, Curtis Ford was 27th and Sebastian Silva was 32nd.

The Roosevelt girls had the top four individual times — including individual champ Megan Schott (15:42) — on the way to the team title with 17 team points, besting Indianola’s 39. The Bulldogs were third with 81.

Latham’s time of 16:37 earned her 10th place while Owens’ time of 16:46 earned her 12th. Ashlyn Thompson placed 17th, Charlette Flanders was 20th, Sydney Strunk was 22nd, Kelsey Howard placed 23rd and Sydney Cloyd was 25th.

“The girls came out hard through the first half of the course,” said Chaney. “The second half was hilly, but they used the momentum they built from the strong first half to finish strong.”

Both Smith and Chaney are looking forward to the Class 4A regional meet next Thursday, which will held at Marshalltown.

“We’re looking forward to that,” said Smith.

“It should be exciting to see how it works out,” said Chaney.
