St.Olaf's women took the women's team trophy, while the Ole men finished third in the team competition. Their team placings flipped from the MIAC championships where the men won and the women were third. The keys to the Loras' success came in preparation and execution. Their coach Bob Schultz took a full team approach telling the team's non-scoring sixth and seventh men to try and finish in front of as many of the other teams that they could.
Schultz preached patience as well with the team members placed within the lead pack, but not up front. Early in the race the top 50 men were only seconds apart, and all seven team members were in that lead pack. The Loras team had shown in winning their "reconnaissance" meet on the Carleton course on October 1 and in a tight battle for the IIAC championships two weeks before Regions that they did not wilt in highly competitive races.
Only 5 points separated the top four men's teams at the IIAC meet with Loras winning the championship with 67 points to 70 for runners' up Nebraska Wesleyan and Wartburg, Central College was fourth with 72 points. Prevailing in that intense competition probably boosted the Loras team's confidence, said St. Thomas coach Pete Wareham.
Both Mason Tope, the Region men's race winner, and Audrey Miller, the Regionals women's champion,said that their experience in the Carleton College Running with the Cows meet got them comfortable with the course which helped them plan and execute their race strategy in the Regional championships.
Schultz noted that the Loras team was young, with only two seniors in their top seven. During the season nine different guys contributed vital points when they were needed. They ran as a team, he said, not as individuals.
"I grew up in Davenport (Iowa). The Bix Run is there. So, I got to see that and my parents would take me to the track. He played soccer a little bit in Middle and High School, but running was always his first choice. On Saturday he went into the race looking to win. He and Jensen have something of a rivalry. Tope hoped to triumph by being patient, not making a move too soon, and by "running smart and running tough."
Part of that, he said, was that he couldn't let Jensen get too far ahead. He was confident in his kick and was plotting to start that kick with 300 to go. That's the way it worked out as the duo came roaring down the finish straight side-by-side, each ratcheting it up to get in high gear. With less than a hundred meters to go Jensen broke and Tope continued on to victory.
A junior majoring in computer science, Tope was asked if he was thinking about continuing running after college. He said he hadn't thought about that yet aside from maybe trying a marathon. He got that idea from five Loras alums who decided to train for and complete a marathon. Asked if he improved enough to be in contention for something more, such as an Olympic team, Tope said: "Guess I haven't really thought about it that much." If that opportunity did present itself, he added, he'd be eager to give it a try.
"I felt kind of guilty," she said as if drafting was not what one was supposed to do in this situation. Miller was content to wait before making her move. Having run and won on this course on October 1, Miller took away valuable information about how to navigate the hills, the patch of sand and gravel, and when to make a break.
That time came a bit past halfway. She opened a gap, had a six second lead by 5K that increased to a 17 second advantage by the finish. A sophomore, Miller was introduced to running in the sixth grade. At the time she was also playing basketball. She wasn't "aggressive" enough for that sport, she said, and decided to drop basketball and concentrate on running. "I liked running the best," she said.
With a double major of biochemistry and Spanish, Miller has not thought of running professionally or trying for the Olympics when her collegiate career is over. She said she'd like to do a marathon, "maybe an Ironman." For now she's satisfied with helping the team and seeing where her athletic talent will take her.

Outside asks the question; Can the Clean Sport Collective have an impact on deterring doping in sports
You must be willing to sacrifice who you are for what you may become
If you can read this, We're just warming up
Why is everybody chasing me?
Pass them don't pace them
We're behind our runners all the way. Way behind.
Run like you you stole something.
Fight to the finish

Not only on the day but going back to dedication and diligence in summer training, strong performances throughout the season with all the team members contributing and executing the race plans. About halfway through the State meet 5K Perham had the upper hand, but during the "middle mile," said Hawkins, Fairmont began the push toward the finish. They started making up ground on the Yellowjackets. Hawkins and the team's other senior Jenna Pavich kept the team's tight pack together.
Pavich was in the middle of the team's top finisher Sarah Krumholz, a sophmore whose mother had been the first Fairmont girl to earn All State honors, and Iliana Ramon, a junior whose family had moved to Texas for her sophmore year but moved back during the summer. That trio finished within seven second of one another. The top five finished within 38.1 seconds with Hawkins in 30th to seal the win.
Since this was their last year, Bonk said, the two seniors seemed extra motivated to finish their cross country careers at the school on a high note. They led by example and pushed and pulled the others throughout the season. The objective in each race they ran this season was "how many people with different uniforms you could pass," said Bonk. "It was all about the team."
It was "a fairly young squad" which was helped by the senior leadership. Another element that contributed to their success this season was that "we just didn't have anybody sick or injured," said Bonk. "It was an ideal year of effort and fun," that finished with the State title. There won't be post season meets because eight or nine of the girls go straight from cross country to a Musical competition on Thursday through Saturday.
The kids at Fairmont have a wide selection of other sports and extra curricular activities, Bonk said. The cross country team gets a lot of support from the school and the people in the town, he added. Now they have a team championship trophy to add to their collection.
