  • Seven schools attended the Cheney Invitational last Thursday. The Skyline girls team finished in 2nd place with 46 points. Host Cheney won the girls meet with 18 points.
    Roman Ibarra was the lone Thunderbird harrier entered in the boys varsity race, so Skyline did not qualify for team standings, but Ibarra placed very well individually, capturing 8th in a time of 18:06.
    All of the T-Bird girls who were healthy ran in the varsity race.
    Megan Pyles (7th 18:07) and Katelyn Kumberg (10th 18:37) both medaled.
    Allison Sanders returned to action this week finishing 14th (19:01). A step behind Sanders was Madison Moore (15th 19:03.)
    Abby Giles was Skyline’s 5th scorer (22nd 19:55). The Lady Thunderbird pushers were Patty Ibarra (24th 20:42) and Ascha Lee (25th 21:12.)
    Brooke Fisher and Miranda Ghumm did not run this week for the T-Birds.
    The usual trio ran JV boys for Skyline. A couple of them placed in the top ten.
    Colin Kumberg (6th 20:34) and Khaleb Cason (10th 20:56)  were in the medal chase and Lucas Cason (16th 21:37) had a nice run as well.
    It was the final regular season meet for the Thunderbirds.
    Skyline head coach Lynette Freeman was pleased with her charges’ efforts on the unfamiliar course. Normally this week, the Thunderbirds would be competing at Medicine Lodge, but that meet was cancelled this year. So the T-Birds accepted an invitation to Cheney instead.
    “This course was so much different than the ones we’ve run at so far this year,” Freeman noticed. “Coaches and spectators weren’t able to get to many places on the course to watch the kids running.”
    Freeman felt that her team handled the inconvenient surroundings well, saying,“They all did great and we had several get their season best time at the meet.”
    “I’m very proud of all the runners,” she continued. “They have really pushed themselves this year and I’m looking forward to seeing them finish this season strong. As a first year coach, I couldn’t have picked a better group of kids to be on the team.”
    Next Thursday the 11th, the Thunderbirds begin post-season competition traveling to Kinsley for the HOPL league meet.
