The cross country team traveled to Pella on Saturday to compete with 11 other schools in the large school division of the Pella Invitational. The race was run on Central College's Cross Country course.
SEP finished 4th as a team with Jordan Toomey coming in 14th as the top individual finisher for the team. The remainder of the varsity scorers for the Rams included Dalten Lehman (19th), Caleb Eichelberger (25th), Daniel Sunvold (29th) and Cutler Owens (38th).
Coach Pat Owens commented, "For our first race of the season, I was happy with our overall finish and the way the team ran. Many of the kids finished strong and were passing other runners towards the end of the race."
The boys are next scheduled to compete at Marshalltown on Thursday September 11.
