BELLWOOD - A team score of 52 put the Mount Union boys cross country team close to the top at Wednesday's Inter-County Conference championship meet, but the Trojans ended the season with a second-place finish after Southern Fulton pulled out a 44 for first place.
The girls team didn't fair as well, landing fifth out of seven teams with a 103. Southern Fulton (36) took the girls win as well.
Individually, the boys were paced by Jake Boozel, who finished sixth overall with his time of 18:40.
The boys top five was rounded out by Shykai Banks, Hunter Corbin, Jarrett Cramer and Nathan Morgan, who finished seventh, 11th, 17th and 19th respectively.
"Our top three runners led by Jake Boozel, all three work really hard, and run together and push each other," Mount Union coach Bob Wydock said, who was very pleased with the way the boys finished the season.
"(I'm) pleased with the boys performance today. It was a good day to run. A number of our runners ran their personal best," he said.
For the girls, Brooke Staley had the highest Mount Union finish with a 25:39 to finish 18th. Marrissa Aurand, Bailey Jensen, Courtney Bard and Kaitlin Todarro had finishes ranging from 20th to 26th place.
"On the girls side, they finished the overall season at 2-7. I was just proud of the girls that they put forth their best effort day in and day out," Wydock said.
Juniata 2, Lancaster Country Day 0
LANCASTER - A 2-0 Tri-Valley League win over Lancaster Country Day kept the Juniata girls soccer team rolling Wednesday as the Indians face just two more regular-season games before entering the District 6 Class AA tournament.
"You want to be playing your best soccer at the end of the season when you're headed into districts, and I think we're headed in the right direction," said Juniata coach Brian Strawser, who had goals from Elisabeth Ritzman and Christen Baublitz in Wednesday's win.
"Our defense did very well getting the shutout, and from the back to the front we played very good soccer," he said.
In addition to goals from Ritzman and Baublitz, Janelle Swartz had an assist and goalie Joelle Winey had seven saves.
Juniata (11-5, 9-2) hosts Upper Dauphin at 10 a.m. Saturday.

Midd-West 3, Shikellamy 0
MIDDLEBURG - It appeared Wednesday as if Midd-West and Shikellamy were going to head into the half of their Heartland Conference boys soccer game with a scoreless tie.
That is, until Zane Leister lit up the board with a goal at 1:15.
Leister gave the Mustangs the lead, and Ty Ross gave them the padding, as two more goals from Ross before the game was over resulted in the 3-0 win for the Mustangs to complete the regular season.
"It was a good way for our seniors to end the regular season at home," Midd-West coach Chris Sauer said. "Now we need to get ready for the postseason and use the momentum we've created on this three-game win streak."
Assists from Andrew Sassaman, Logan Klinepeter and Trevor Stuck contributed to the win.
Midd-West finishes the season at 12-6 overall and 10-4 in the Heartland Conference and awaits the beginning of the District 4 Class AA tournament.
