Prep cross country: Hancke gets kick out of his big finish

EAST LANSING — The Grand Ledge High School girls cross country team and Haslett senior Ian Hancke of Haslett established themselves as contenders — if not favorites – for the best in the mid-Michigan area and perhaps for Greater Lansing Meet titles in a month with their performances at the Spartan Invitational on Friday.

The Comets girls, who are ranked 10th in Division 1, finished ninth among the 16 ranked teams in the Nike Girls Elite Division and three spots ahead of defending Greater Lansing meet champion Williamston at Michigan State University’s Forest Akers East Golf Course.

Hancke won the Green Division race for larger schools in 16:09, and finished 26 seconds ahead of 2008 Lansing State Journal runner of the year Matt Hoshal of East Lansing.
