Thomas Jefferson's Aidan Booton runs during the boys varsity race in the Lewis Central Cross Country Invite at Iowa Western Community College on Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019.

GLENWOOD – After a lengthy layoff for many, Saturday’s Glenwood Cross Country Invite got the ball rolling on new season.

Lewis Central’s boys team finished second overall with 73 points, trailing only Urbandale, which won with 50.

Individually, Thomas Jefferson’s Aidan Booton crossed the finish line second, followed by LC’s Ethan Eichhorn.

“Booton closed out the Glenwood chapter of his cross country career with a runner-up finish,” Thomas Jefferson coach Doug Muehlig said. “His freshman year he was fifth and then captured individual championships his sophomore and junior seasons.”

Lewis Central freshman Ethan Eichhorn made a big first impression with his third-place finish, and had help behind him as five Titans finished in the top 30.

“Ethan came out of the gates flying today,” Lewis Central coach Taylor May said. “To finish third in his first ever high school race is very impressive. He’s extremely dedicated and we are really excited about what he is going to be able to do. He beat some really good runners today. Nathan Sell, Tyler Ruiz, and Kayden Pearson also came out and had a good season debut for us today. Those seniors have really stepped up this year and are becoming great leaders for our team.”

On the girls side, Lewis Central finished sixth, while T.J. was ninth.
