Boonville senior Logan Pfeiffer added some more hardware to his trophy case Tuesday during the Mexico Autumn Classic in Mexico.
While competing against a field of 70 runners, Pfeiffer finished 15th overall in a time of 18 minutes and 46 seconds.
Charlie Pumel finished 21st overall in a time of 19:09, followed by Luke Green in 26th place in a time of 19:26, Lance Marshall 53rd in 21:08, Hayden Potter 56th in 21:31, Brayden McFarland 58th in 21:58 and Adam Schneringer in 63rd place in 22:45.
Boonville cross-country coach Melissa Baker said Mexico had a nice two lap course.
“The boys didn’t break any personal records, but they did compete against several teams they will see in districts. “Logan Pfeiffer was the only runner to place in the top 20 and earn a medal,” Baker said. “Charlie Pumel was close with his 21st place finish. All of our times were slower, not sure what that was about, it was a cold meet and the Pirates needed to spend extra time warming up prior to the race. We have some work to do before districts on October 27th, but I think if our boys work hard they will definitely be competitive.”
Nathan Frazee of Clark County had the fastest time in the meet in 17:14.73 while Evan AuBuchon and Nolon Carter, both of Kirksville, finished second and third in time of 17:35.31 and 17:55.23, respectively. Alex Fincher of Moberly was fourth in 17:58.99 while Gage Worley of Mexico took fifth in 18:05.51.
Kirksville took home the team title with 44 points while Mexico finished second with 73 points, Helias third with 94 points, Clark County fourth with 101 points and Centralia fifth with 139 points. Boonville finished eighth with 169 points.
For the Boonville girls, Daylynn Baker  finished 42nd overall out of 60 runners in a time of 26:01. Jalyn Schnetzler finished in 43rd place in 26:02 while Molly Amos took 50th in 27:56 and Rachel Massa 58th in 29:05.
Baker said Daylynn Baker and Jalyn Schnetzler both pushed each other at the finish line. “Molly had a strong kick at the end, which was fun to watch,” Baker said.
Delaney Straus of Marion County had the winning time in the race for the girls in 20:23.71. Grace Buschling of Clark County finished second in a time of 20:48.64, followed by Schler Angell of Centralia in 21:31.68, Jessica Bodmer of St. Dominic in 21:33 and Moenaisa Sidique of Mexico in 21:33.25.
