LINCOLN – Plattsmouth runners blazed successful trails Friday afternoon during a meet at Pioneers Park in Lincoln.

The Blue Devils competed against teams from across eastern Nebraska in the Ken Adkisson Vikes Invite. The Waverly-sponsored meet featured a variety of Class B and C schools and multiple returning state medalists. PHS head coach Todd Nott said he was pleased with the results.

“Great efforts today in the heat and wind and some illness floating amongst the team,” Nott said. “With the right attitudes both teams are on track to do some even more special things in October.”

Madison Nelson (11th, 22:39.61) guided the Plattsmouth girls with a medal-winning run. She secured the best time of her career on the course. She cut more than three minutes off her run at Pioneers Park last year.

Stockton Graham (2nd, 17:17.30) and C.J. Wiseman (14th, 18:31.76) both won medals for the PHS boys. Graham chopped his time by 34 seconds from a year ago. He claimed his fourth medal of the season.

Wiseman continued his medal-winning work this fall. He appeared in an awards ceremony for the third straight meet.

Nott said he was proud of the Blue Devils for their willingness to absorb life lessons as well. He said they had been positive ambassadors for Plattsmouth both at the park and on the bus ride home.

“It’s really pretty cool how the entire team pitches in to clean up camp at the end of a meet,” Nott said. “I really appreciate the ownership that you all take in the program. Along those same lines after we were all out of the bus tonight and the bus driver had done a walk-through, she yelled out to me with a big smile, ‘They left the bus spotless. That doesn’t happen with some of the teams.’ So once again, thank you!”
