Coach ‘pleased’ with N-P runners

Lead Summary

Crunch time is rapidly approaching for the Nashua-Plainfield cross country team, and the way the somewhat limited Huskies ran last week, coach Jennifer Kalainoff believes her team is ready for the postseason.  Nashua-Plainfield ran without three seniors who were on the homecoming court at last week’s Hampton-Dumont Invitational, but both the boys and girls put up solid finishes.  The boys finished sixth while girls took seventh in a meet dominated by Class 2A and 3A teams.  “​I was very pleased,” Kalainoff said. “The girls are continuing to make progress. Our times really were not much off of our Osage times, and that was a good meet for us. “  On the boys side, Brock Dietz led the way with a 16th-place finish while Caleb Lines cut almost 40 seconds off his 2015 H-D time and finished 33rd.​  ”I think maturity and being a year older has helped tremendously,” Kalainoff said when asked about Lines’ performance. With a year's growth, he's also that much stronger. I also think that having two great workout partners helps the most. Brock is always a target for the guys, and Luke [Cerwinske] is always right on Caleb's heels. Having that day in and day out only benefits. ​For all the N-P results, please see the Oct. 6 Reporter.
