The St. Marys boys cross country team captured a season-opening victory in a quad meet at K.C. Geiger Park on Tuesday, paced by meet winner Alex Mielke. The Wapakoneta girls capture the Auglaize County event, while New Knoxville’s girls team turned in the top two times of the race.
The Roughrider boys finished first with 30 points, edging out second-place New Bremen (34 points). Wapakoneta took third (86) and New Knoxville was fourth (92).
Mielke won the race with a 17:50 time for the Roughriders.
Just a few minutes into Tuesday’s season opener between the St. Marys and Delphos St. John’s girls soccer teams, it was clear this was a new season and the two familiar teams were on the opposite ends of the experience continuum.
The Roughriders blanked the Blue Jays 10-0 in a rematch of last fall’s dramatic district final.
The obvious storyline entering the game was a rematch between teams that met in the Division II district title at Elida game last fall that saw Delphos St. John’s stun St. Marys in overtime penalty kicks.
