The Illinois Valley Central cross country team headed to Prairie Central Saturday for the Prairie Central Invite.

The boys team came in first, beating Gardner-South Wilmington by a score of 29-36.

“That was the first time that Gardner-South Wilmington has been beaten all year,” coach Mike Themas said.

Ryan Greskoviak came in third for the Ghosts and Dusty Seckler finished fifth.

The girls team finished third with a score of 103.

“There were six different races at the meet,” Themas said. “We had 19 runners and 15 of those earned a medal.

“The course was muddy. It was windy and cold.

“Our times weren’t our best but we did a nice job of competing.”

IVC was scheduled to run at home Tuesday.

The Ghosts next race at 10 a.m. Monday at Amboy High School.
