Creek Boys win Tipton XC invite

TIPTON– Clear Creek Amana’s (CCA) varsity boys cross country squad won the Tipton Invitational Tuesday, Sept. 5, in Tipton’s City Park. The Clippers topped the 18-team field with 77 team points and were led by Nick O’Connor’s seventh-place finish in 17:10. Brandon Barker was three seconds behind O’Connor and took eighth place.
Center Point-Urbana was second in points with 91 while the host Tigers were third with 102.
“We had a very, very good night,” Coach Ben Robison said. “Our three and four guys (Jack Sexton and Cole Liebe) are doing a great job of stepping up, breaking out of the comfort zone, and closing the gap on our leaders. Kaden McAreavy (the Clippers’ number-five runner) is starting to find his stride a little bit and doing a good job of moving up and closing the spread.” Robison added, “Some of our JV (junior varsity) guys are finding their groove, too, so there’s lots of good stuff happening. I’m excited to see what this group can accomplish!”
The JV boys were fifth behind Tipton, Solon, Central DeWitt and Cascade, with Shiloh Robbins leading the way with his ninth-place finish in 19:20. CCA’s middle school also competed with the Clipper boys, finishing 12th in a 17-team field. Mount Vernon-Lisbon won the meet. CCA was led by 15th-place Jaxon Strank with a time of 9:18.
The Clippers will run Monday, Sept. 18, in Solon’s meet at the Solon Recreation and Nature Area starting at 5 p.m., and will host their own invitational meet on Monday, Sept. 25, at Kickers Soccer Park in Iowa City.
