Salem’s Luke Haran took first place in a time of 16:59. Novi did not challenge. Instead, the Wildcats continued to employ their pack mentality to overcome Salem in the team scoring.

Novi’s John Landy led the Wildcat contingent with a time of 17:51. He was immediately followed by Gabe Mudel, Scott Macpherson, Aric Landy, Trey Mullins, and Chris Silva. All five were awarded a time 17:51. “We run best when we run in a pack. We try to do it whenever possible” explained Coach Robert Smith.

Nate Wood (12th, 18:09) rounded out the top 7 for Novi. “Nate was just a little off of the pace today” said Coach Smith. “He has proven that he can run with our top pack. He’ll be back, no worries”.

Freshman Matt Whyte almost broke into the varsity ranks by finishing in 8th place for the Novi runners. His time of 18:10 was good for 13th place overall. “Matt has a bright future for us” observed Smith. “He will most likely be in the 17’s before the end of the month. I am very proud of his commitment and dedication.”

Whyte, Adam Krueger, and Divyesh Hariram all set a career PR in the 80 degree day at Cass Benton.
