The three Hillsboro-Central Valley boys runners who competed in Friday’s Augustana Twilight meet in Sioux Falls, S.D. ran 35 to 50 seconds faster than they did at last year’s meet.

“I think those three are just naturally better than they were last year,” Burros head coach Kirk Zink said about seniors Chase Fossum and Luke Leshuk and junior Jackson Anderson.

“Not only are they in as good or better shape as last year but they’ve improved their strength, endurance and their ability to compete over where they were at this point last year.”

Fossum earned a 13th-place finish under the lights at Yankton Trail Park in 16:25. Andrew Lauer of Lincoln (S.D) won the meet with a time of 15:18.
