DRYDEN — The Dryden boys' cross country team watched an outstanding season reach an endpoint with a seventh-place showing last Saturday at the Division 3 state finals.

Michigan International Speedway, in Brooklyn, is where the meet was contested.

"To say the boys exceeded my expectations is an understatement," Dryden Coach Kory Lohrmann said. "We have worked hard this year and knew we could be competitive at the state level," he noted.

"Realistically I thought it was possible for us to finish around 10th, but to wind up seventh is phenomenal. It was a great effort at states for us in our first team appearance. Brenden (Knuth) and Ethan (Rozanski) were incredible. Each has worked so hard. They are now the first All-State cross country runners in Dryden history."

Saugatuck (62 points) paced the field assembled. They were followed by Mt. Pleasant Sacred Heart (102 points), East Jordan (153), Breckenridge (157), Unionville Sebewaing Area (227), Muskegon Western Michigan Christian (266), Dryden (293), Plymouth Christian Academy (295), Potterville (295), Hillsdale Academy (301), Beal City (333), Bridgman (388), Concord (391), Lutheran Westland (408), Mayville (411), Saranac (422), Lake Leelanau St. Mary (426), Ellsworth (429), Kalamazoo Christian (430), Hudson (471), Rochester Hills Lutheran Northwest (475), Gobles (495), Mason County Eastern (523), Bear Lake-Onekama (532), Addison (545) and Johannesburg-Lewiston (575) and Mendon (626).

Brenden Knuth led Dryden that day. Knuth stopped the watch at 17:00.3, paving the way to an 11th.

Ethan Rozanski, 13th, 17:03.3l; posted the next quickest Dryden clocking.

For their performances, Knuth and Rozanski received All-State accolades (reserved for the top-30 finishers in the race).

Ronny Hudson, 97th, 18:24.4; furnished Dryden's third swifest time. He was backed by Andrew Sisler, 159th, 19:03.1; and Reed Hall, 160th, 19:06.8.

Ethan Knuth, 239th, 22:42.5; and John Lynch, 23:23.8; 241st, also participated for Dryden that day.
