WAVERLY – Plattsmouth runners ensured they would be taking a large vehicle to the state meet with their performances at Thursday’s district contests.

The Blue Devils enjoyed a series of successful efforts at the District B-1 Meet. The Plattsmouth boys claimed the team title with 18 points, and the PHS girls captured third place in their race with 49 points. All six runners on both squads will represent the school at next week’s state meet.

Three PHS girls collected medals at Waverly High School’s course. Madison Nelson placed fifth in 21:24.32, Jozlyn Barnes was 12th in 22:26.21 and Natalie Briggs finished 13th in 22:29.50. Sydney Nelson, Sophia Wehrbein and Ava LaSure helped the Blue Devils secure the team ticket to state.

The PHS boys had five medalists at the meet. Stockton Graham earned the individual title with a first-place run of 16:56.97. He defeated runner-up Noble Valerio-Boster of Ralston by nearly 15 seconds.

Kaleb Wooten (17:37.19, 4th), C.J. Wiseman (17:41.61, 6th), Sam Campin (17:45.96, 7th) and Caleb Davis (18:14.96, 11th) all secured spots in the top 15. Hunter Smith (18:36.53) helped the team with his work at districts.

Plattsmouth head coach Todd Nott said the PHS boys made program history with their total of 18 points. It was the best district point total of any PHS boys squad in his 28 years leading the program. The previous top total was 19 points at the 2015 district meet. The Plattsmouth girls set the overall school standard with a perfect ten points at the 2013 district meet.
