In review

Cross-country running: Homer’s cross-country running team had originally been scheduled to attend a meet last weekend with other peninsula schools at the Tsalteshi Trails in Soldotna. When sports were canceled for the high schools in Nikiski, Soldotna and Kenai due to high community transmission of COVID-19, the team switched gears and traveled to Seward for a two-school meet.

Seward runners topped both races on Friday at the dual meet.

Seward’s Maranatha Brueckner took first place overall in the girls race with a time of 23 minutes, 49 seconds. Homer’s Eryn Field took second place in 24:34.

Seward’s Max Pfeiffenberger came first for the boys with a time of 18:32, and Homer’s Seamus McDonough took second in 19:19.
