{{featured_button_text}}

WEST DES MOINES – Lewis Central’s Ethan Eichhorn finished second overall, and Thomas Jefferson’s Aidan Booton and Juan Martinez placed fourth and 10th, respectively, in Tuesday’s West Des Moines Valley Invite.

Eichhorn, a freshman, crossed in 17 minutes, 20 seconds, while Booton (17:26) and Martinez (17:45) also ran impressive races on a warm day.

“Ethan ran his best race of his very young career today,” L.C. coach Taylor May said. “His second-place finish is the highest ever for any Council Bluffs runner at the Valley meet. To come up here and run the way he did with all these top 4-A runners was very impressive.”

T.J. coach Doug Muehlig was happy with the performances from his top two runners.

“They met their goals,” he said. “It was a tough field. You had Norwalk ranked, Ankeny Centennial ranked and Waukee ranked. Aidan ran a good, smart race. It was a good field of people.”

L.C. finished fourth with 114 points, ahead of fifth-place T.J. (118). Norwalk took top honors in the team standings with 37 points.

In the girls race, L.C.’s Haley Bach paced all Council Bluffs runners with a 22nd-place showing (22:29). T.J.’s Cara Ronk led the way for the Yellow Jackets (41st, 24:50).

West Des Moines Valley took top honors in the team standings with 24 points.
