Jeffery Rogers, Ryan Schumacher, Luke Horne, Jeffery Osborn and Anders Beil are a few names you will see at the top of the list of the long distance runners for cub boys in CYO. The question is, who will be at the top of the list each time?
Ryan Schumacher had the best times coming into the Meet of Champions but you know, some days just aren’t your days! Luke Horne had an amazing end of race victory in the 3000. Jeffery Rogers, whose best time in the 1500 was only 3 seconds slower than Schumachers, shaved 7 or 8 seconds off his best time to win the event.
Champion: Jeffery Rogers (St. Anthony) 4:54.36
2nd: Ryan Schumacher (St. Thomas More) 4:59.21
3rd: Luke Horne (Holy Trinity) 4:59.72
4th: Anders Beil (St. Thomas More) 5:01.51
5th: Jeffery Osborn (St. Anthony) 5:08.55
6th: Aaron Pinney (St. John Fisher) 5:09.60
7th: Gavin Summers (Our Lady of the Lake) 5:09.92
8th: Andrew Zabudsky (St. Pius X) 5:10.14
I can’t wait to see what these boys do next year and the next year. They are all just plain fun to watch!

Cole Grieb, CYO Meet of Champions winner in the 3000 Cadet Boys 2015
Not sure where he came from but he made an impact at the CYO Meet of Champions with his red hair and genuine great kid smile as he sailed to victory in the 400, 200 and 100 meter dashes! A powerful runner with great speed and a lot of great qualities that will make him a much sought after high school athlete for sure. Seton are you listening?
