Kiara Iron Heart and Preston Iron Heart took second and 17th place, respectively, at the Western Classic Cross Country Meet held in Dillon last week. Usual frontrunner Jeremy Bockus came in a few seconds behind Iron Heart for an 18th place finish.

“Kiara Iron Heart did really well, but I’m not surprised,” Coach Roy McNabb said of her placing second. “She’s been making progress steadily since track season. Her off-season training is showing, and it’s the reason for her success. Nobody is out of her league.”

Coach McNabb is also happy with the teamwork on the boys side.

“Jeremy Bockus pulls the team along,” the coach said. “They still compete with each other, but at the end they all say ‘good race,’ and it’s that type of camaraderie that keeps them together. They’re all looking for their last personal best times.”

Coach McNabb said he’s been working his runners on hills but this week is scaling back on the work in preparation for state competition in Missoula this Friday and Saturday.

“We ran the course this year at Mountain West,” McNabb said, “so our times should be better.”
