BOYS TOWN – Stockton Graham and C.J. Wiseman both delivered thunderbolt performances for Plattsmouth in the league cross country meet on Wednesday.

The two Blue Devils earned medals at the Eastern Midlands Conference Meet. Graham ended his EMC career with a third-place time of 16:58.30. Wiseman secured his 12th-place award with a mark of 17:28.20 on the Boys Town course.

The Plattsmouth seniors highlighted a day that was filled with weather-related events. EMC coaches and administrators decided earlier in the week to move the meet ahead 24 hours from Thursday to Wednesday due to a rainy forecast. Thursday turned out to have steady precipitation and wind chills in the low 30s.

Temperatures on Wednesday were in the low 60s in the afternoon. Runners were at the starting line for the varsity boys race when thunderstorms moved into the area. The meet was delayed 55 minutes due to lightning strikes in western and central Omaha. Gray storm clouds moved to the east and athletes began races just before 5 p.m.

The Plattsmouth girls placed fifth in team standings with 87 points. PHS and Norris both finished with the same point total, but Norris claimed fourth place based on tiebreaker criteria. Elkhorn won the league title with a perfect score of ten points. The Antlers claimed all four of the top individual spots.

Madison Nelson led the Blue Devils with a 16th-place finish of 21:29.30. Jozlyn Barnes (18th, 22:02.97) registered a top-20 finish for the team, and Natalie Briggs, Sydney Nelson, Ava LaSure and McKenzie Mott all posted times.

The PHS boys captured fifth place with 62 points. Norris ran away from the field with 33 points. Elkhorn (46) edged Bennington (48) for second place in team standings.

Graham and Wiseman both medaled and Kaleb Wooten (18:06.51, 22nd) and Sam Campin (18:22.36, 25th) had top-25 finishes. Caleb Davis and Hunter Smith both helped the team with their times.

Plattsmouth will prepare this week for the District B-1 Meet. District teams will travel to Waverly High School for the event. Participants will be allowed to take warmups on the course at 4 p.m. The varsity girls race will start at 5 p.m. and varsity boys will run at 5:30 p.m.
