Senior Cooper Marrs and the Riverside-Brookfield High School boys cross country team continued their winning ways at the 63rd R-B Invitational Saturday at Indian Gardens.

Marrs took first for the third straight year and the RBHS boys also comfortably achieved a title three-peat (32 points) over second-place Morton (59). Marrs (15:30.5 for 3.0 miles) won by 6.5 seconds.

Senior Jack O’Brien was fourth (15:54.0) and junior Brady Norman (16:17.4) and seniors Brennan Lester (16:20.6) and Will Kallas (16:24.7) finished 8th through 10th. Junior Asa Kahle (16th, 16:39.8) and senior Evan McMullen (20th, 16:55.7) also were top-20 medalists.

“A good day for the Bulldogs,” RBHS coach Jack Brady responded. “Our top five guys ran together through the [first] mile. Our 54-second spread (from) 1-to-5 was the best in my three years at RBHS.” 

The RBHS girls came in second (98 points) to Nazareth Academy (51).

Junior Gianna Gelb (6th, 19:39.4), sophomore Adeline Vaia (10th, 20:10.8) in her cross country debut, and senior Maria Dalton (17th, 20:56.2) were top-20 medalists for the Bulldogs, followed by sophomore Rebecca Dosek (33rd, 21:54.4), seniors Maia Nelson (34th, 21:58.9) and Lily Kocourek (35th, 21:59.2) and junior Jorie Eggers (49th, 22:44.6).

“The invite was a great event,” RBHS coach Blair Jensen said. “Most girls are running better when compared to last year. Some young girls are starting to push themselves.” 

Nazareth medalists were freshmen Sophia Towne (4th, 19:32.3) and Allie O’Halloran (7th, 19:50.3), seniors Jane McNamara (9th, 19:58.9) and Hannah McCarthy (12th, 20:13.8) and freshman Julia Parkes (19th, 21:04.2).
