Cold weather and on-and-off did nothing to slow down the boys cross country team on Monday, as they topped Waseca 34-21 in a rescheduled meet.

The beat went on for Caleb Rivera as he once again finished first, followed by Marco Crispin, Juan Castaneda, Levi Miest, and Austin Knickrehm in the top 10.

Jacob Friesen and Bennett Flohrs rounded out the top seven for the Saints.

Diana Rodriguez led the St. James girls, finishing fifth overall. America Trejo Esqueda finished 12th overall and second on the Saints.

The Saints will wrap up their regular season on Thursday with a meet against Jackson County Central and Blue Earth Area at Voss Park in Butterfield.
