Badger boys beat Waterford in dual meet


Badger’s Nolan Cassidy, shown in action last year, finished 11th at the sectional meet on Oct. 31 to help the team advance to the state championship.

The Badger boys and girls cross-country teams both traveled to Waterford on Sept. 3, though the boys had a better road trip than the girls.


The two schools competed in a 4,000-meter race, rather than the typical 5,000-meter distance, and though Badger and Waterford’s top two runners were evenly matched, the Badgers’ depth allowed them to prevail in a 22-37 victory.

Badger sophomore Jackson Albanese came in first with a time of 12:53, followed by Waterford’s Connor Zach with a time of 13:24 in second, then Badger’s Logan Wade in third at 13:27 and Logan Muffick of Waterford with a time of 13:55.

After that back-and-forth alternation, it was all Badger. Nine of the next 10 runners to cross the finish line were Badgers, which gave them a sizable lead in the final point totals.

Nolan Cassidy in fifth place at 13:59, Seth Linnenmann in sixth two seconds later at 14:01 and Brody Kluge finishing seventh with a 14:04 time finished out the scoring efforts for Badger’s boys.


The matchup between the Badger and Waterford girls was a bit closer, with the Wolverines coming out on top 24-31.

Two Waterford runners finished before any Badgers did, but then the top three Badger runners crossed the finish line in the 4,000-meter race within six seconds. Elly Wall placed third with a time of 17:04, Ava Trent was fourth at 17:09, and Vivian Ford took fifth with a 17:10.

What did the Badgers in was the fact that three more Wolverines placed in a row next, taking spots six through eight to seal the victory.

A pair of Kates rounded out the scoring for the Badgers, as Kate Murray placed ninth at 17:42 and Kate Hoover was 10th at 17:48.

The ChiefDogs were also in action Sept. 3, competing in the CamRock Invite in Cambridge.

For the boys, BFWB finished sixth out of eight teams, with a score of 165.

The top finisher for the squad was Gus Foster, who ran a 20:42 and placed 20th, though he earned only 19 points for the team. Evan Penniman was next up at 21:53 in 33rd place out of 89 runners for 26 points.

Connor Pecht earned 36 points for a 51st finish at 23:37, Bradley Galvin finished in 26:32 and took 67th for 41 points, and Clayton Holt was in 70th with a time of 27:28 to earn 43 points.

Big Foot/Williams Bay’s lone girls runner, Sydney Lueck, placed 32nd out of 55 with a time of 29:19.
