As always, the NICL Meet was held at Oakleaf Golf Course in Reinbeck on Saturday, October 19th. With nearly 400 runners and 15 teams involved, this is one of the larger events held each year. The boys team championship went to Denver. Kyle Kehoe (15:52) was the boys individual champion. The girls team championship went to East Marshall. Haley Frye (15:39) from East Marshall was the individual champion. Again, G-R came out ready to perform. Tyler Bovy and Nicole Adair each earned honorable mention status in the conference with their performances. But most runners improved their performance from a year ago, which is quite an accomplishment. The improvement made this year by this group of young people has been quite impressive. We will look to once again have a strong performance at the State Qualifying Meet in Eagle Grove on Thursday.
