Big Orange Wave Competes Well In CHS Invitational

The Big Orange Wave put in a solid performance last Saturday morning in the Catholic High Invitational. The Wave overcame a weather delay and injuries to finish fourth overall, but coach Pete Boudreaux’s young runners competed well. “Another close meet for our guys. They continue to run hard and improve against solid teams. We need to keep hanging in there and stay tough as we get into the second half of the season,” noted Boudreaux.

Collin Hedges (11th), Chris Cuntz (21st), Peter Kelly (24th), Ben Langley (26th) and Luke Bella (33rd) rounded out the top five for the Wave. Cuntz had a personal best of 16:26. Hedges ran a 16:10 to lead CHS as the team scored 111 points. Brother Martin was victorious in the varsity meet.

In junior high action, the Wave scored 39 points to capture first place. Joseph Ellis finished 4th, Owen Simon ran 5th, Nick Raetzsch placed 8th, Bailey Faulk finished 11th and Alex Leonard was 14th. Six junior high runners set personal records.

In the open competition, Sean Dunn ran a 17:59 for three miles.

The Wave will be back in action Saturday, Oct. 21, in the Metro Championship at Highland Road Park. First race is for 8:00 a.m.
