New Town’s Robert White and Hillsboro-Central Valley’s  Chase Fossum have been on top of the Class B cross-country poll a majority of this season.

The two runners faced off Saturday at the Anderson/Stavn Invite in Bismarck, N.D., with White beating Fossum to the finish line by 14 seconds.

“It was nice for Chase to see that he can close on (White) in mile two and mile three and make it a competitive race,” Burros head coach Kirk Zink said Wednesday.

Fossum finished ninth out of 153 runners with a time of 16:45. He and White were the first Class B runners to finish the race. Junior Brady Yoder of Dickinson won in 15:33.

H-CV junior Jackson Anderson came in 35th (17:52) and beat New Town’s No. 2 runner junior Addison Red Fox by about nine seconds.

“It was really nice to see (Anderson) run like that. Hopefully this is a motivator from here going forward,” Zink said. “On the same token, Jackson knows he can go a lot faster than that. He just can.”

“His goal was to finish in the top 15,” Garrett-Mehus said. “He kind of just set his pace and just stayed right there.
