Grove 3rd, Ervin 11th to lead their respective SH teams at Clear Lake

CLEAR LAKE — The South Hamilton cross country teams competed for the first time since late August here yesterday afternoon.

Thanks, Mother Nature.

The rust was evident, as the third-ranked (Class 1A) Hawk boys struggled. Quinton Grove finished third in 17:41, but he was the lone team member in the top 10.

Official individual and team placings weren’t known as of press time.

Logan Peters was the next South Hamilton runner to cross in 18:20. Gaige Pickering clocked a 18:28, Ty Skartvedt 18:45 and Clay Willadsen 21:01 to round out the team scoring.

Abby Ervin turned in a personal-best time of 23:06 and placed 11th to lead the South Hamilton girls team. Brookelyn George had a PR as well.
