The Hart Boys Cross Country team ran a great tactical race to win the Regional held at Benzie High School. In a field of 15 teams, they ran by Benzie High School who had been ranked 5th in the State Coaches poll rankings. On a perfect morning to step to the line, the Pirates were led by Alex Enns 2nd place finish in 15:58 (SR). Alex was followed by Clayton Ackley 8th @ 16:47 (PR), Hunter Tubbs 12th @17:01 (SR), Spencer Vander Zwaag 15th @ 17:11 (PR), Seth Ackley 16th @ 17:12 (PR), Mikey Tubbs 18th @ 17:25 (SR), and Wyatt Dean 19th @ 17:27 (PR). The number 2 through 7 runners had a 40 second spread which put 7 runners inside Benzies 4th runner sealing the victory for Hart. Every runner for Hart either had a season best or personal best race time today. Congratulations to Alex Enns, Clayton Ackley, Hunter Tubbs, and Spencer Vander Zwaag earning All Regional accolades. They will be headed to Michigan International Speedway for the State Finals next Saturday. GO PIRATES!!!!
