The Paynesville boys' cross country team finished ninth out of 13 teams at their home meet on Thursday at Koronis Hills Golf Course.|
Sauk Rapids, a Class AA school, edged St. Cloud Cathedral, a Class A school, for the team title.
The Dogs ran without their top runner, senior Matt Mehr, who is out with an injury.
Sophomore Dugan Flanders led the Dogs by finishing 27th overall. Sophomore Peder Thompson (38th), eighth grader Josh Sturtz (44th), senior Chris Utsch (49th), and eighth grader Jamison Wall (56th) completed the Dogs' team score.
Coach Darrel Carstens said he was pleased with the way the Dogs ran in the meet, better than at their previous meet, but they need to continue to improve as the conference, subsection, and section meets approach.
