The Hillsdale Hornets boys Cross Country team has made quite a reputation for themselves over the last several years at the MHSAA Division 3 state finals.

The Hornets, led by stellar individual runners and strong team efforts, have made a regular home on Division 3’s top ten list of teams.

This Saturday was no different, as excellent performances from two seniors helped Hillsdale to take home third place in an extremely competitive race.

Sebastian Reisch took home seventh place overall with a time of 16:17 and Lyle Kafer finished just behind him in eighth (16:24), to lead the way for the Hornets.

“It was a very solid day overall for our team,” said Hillsdale coach Pat Pastula. “All of our kids left it all out there on the course, and it was great to see our two seniors turn in excellent performances in their final meets. Sebastian has never gotten an all-state honor in cross country before this year and to see him finally get rewarded for his effort is a great thing. Lyle’s improvement over the course of the year was great to watch as well. Overall, I’m happy.”
