The Huskies were ranked sixth in state according to wirunners.com with a record of 93-11, with all losses coming to top 15 teams in the state. Milan Stojanovic was named the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Runner of the Week on Oct. 2.
Hale traveled to Silver Lake to run in the Westosha Central Falcon Invitational. The host school was ranked 14th in the state and won the meet, but the Huskies beat seven other teams to finish second.
"The course was very tough and did not produce any (personal records) on the varsity for us," coach Ron Kurtz said. "Westosha has qualified for state each of the last two years."
Stojanovic continued to run well, placing second (16:31) to Westosha's Tyler Fiebelkorn. Sam Gagliano was ninth (17:02) followed by Dan Nelson in 10th (17:04), Robert Effinger, 12th (17:18), Tony Lozano, 14th (17:33), Tim Ebben, 23rd (18:15), and Alec Krause, 25th (18:31).
"Usually in an invitational, if you can get your scorers in the top 20, you have a good chance to win," Kurtz said. "We had our scorers in the top 14, but still could not catch Westosha."
