ROUNDUP: DeKalb's Schrader takes first at Eddington Invite

DeKalb senior Kelsey Schrader won the Kaneland Eddington Invitational, completing the three-mile course in 18:30. She won by more than 30 seconds over Marengo's Kitty Allen.

Sycamore senior Stephanie Cole was the top finisher for the Spartans, placing 46th in 21:37.

Kaneland finished third as a team and was led by sophomore Brianna Bower (fifth, 19:16), Victoria Clinton (12th, 19:46) and Jessica Kucera (28th, 20:47).


Stice takes 11th: Sycamore's Mark Stice placed 11th in 16:28 at the Eddington Invite. DeKalb's Isaac Hietanen was the Barbs' top finisher, placing 24th in 16:54. Paul Fielder was 31st, finishing in 17:03.

"On a positive note, one of our focuses for this meet was to try to cut down our gap between Mark and our pack runners and several of the boys were able to do that," said Sycamore coach Mike Lambdin, whose team finished ninth.

Kaneland's Ryan Bower and Nathaniel Kucera were 22nd and 23rd.
