Lydia Gessner was one of seven Chickasaws to run their best times of the season at Saturday’s Crestwood Invitational.

Normal week leads to fast times for Chickasaws, Trojans

The New Hampton and Turkey Valley cross country teams finally enjoyed a “normal” week, and they capped it off with a shining run on a cold Saturday outing in Cresco.

“To get a chance to run two meets and to have a chance to hold normal practices, we’ve been waiting forever for this,” New Hampton coach Jamie Ohrt said. “We needed it, and I think it showed by the times we ran.”

The Chickasaws got a fifth-place finish from Nolan Usher and a 16th-place finish from his brother, Dylan, to take fourth in the team standings at the Crestwood Invitational, but more importantly, New Hampton had four runners rip off career-best times and three more claim season-best times.

Turkey Valley, meanwhile, got a strong second-place finish from Jalyssa Blazek and had a number of season-bests.

Results from each team are available in the Oct. 2 Tribune.
