Davies wins East Region boys cross country meet; Central takes girls meet

GRAND FORKS – Normally, after completing a race, Karly Ackley will turn around and greet fellow runners as they finish. On Saturday, however, Ackley collapsed at the finish line and wasn’t able to check on her opponents.

The Grand Forks Central freshman wouldn’t have seen anything as far as other runners. Nobody was within eyesight on the approximately 200-meter home stretch. That’s how much Ackley dominated at the Eastern Dakota Conference high school cross country meet at Lincoln Park.

Ackley individually and Central in the team race swept the girls division. Fargo Davies also swept on the boys side, with Branden Scheel winning the championship.

“It was a different race,” Ackley said. “The course is a little beat up, which made it harder to run. And I felt a little queasy, a little sick, today. I’ve never collapsed like that before.

“From what I’ve been told, everybody was pretty far behind.”

Ackley had a winning time of 15 minutes, six seconds. That was 35 seconds ahead of runner-up Alexis Matter of Davies. “That’s a pretty big difference. Usually it’s around 5 to 10 seconds,” said Ackley, whose time was the second-fastest of her career.

Central coach Sean Allan said Ackley ran more of a complete race. “She was aggressive right from the beginning,” Allan said. “Sometimes she’ll get a lead and just work to maintain it. Today she kept pushing herself. To win by 35 seconds, that’s a pretty big margin.”

On the boys’ side, Scheel ran a 16.18 race to beat runner-up Camron Roehl of Central by 10 seconds. Scheel has won 10 of the 11 races in which the senior has participated this season, and he has yet to lose to a North Dakota opponent.

“You get that target on your back, everyone out to beat you,” said Scheel. “But it’s awesome; it’s incentive. Obviously it’s a goal to keep beating everyone. It gets your adrenaline going.”

Davies scored 56 points, followed by West Fargo (82), Central (84) and Red River.
