Lakeland Union's girls and boys cross country team win 41st annual Hatchet Invite
TOMAHAWK - Tomahawk hosted its 41st annual Hatchet invite on Saturday, despite the rainy weather.

They combined the JV and varsity races to help it go by faster.

Nekoosa's top runner Miguel Mathias was rumored to give Lakeland Union Kav FitzPatrick a good fight, but FitzPatrick won the meet, almost 30 seconds ahead of Mathias.

Both Lakeland Union girls and boys teams won the invite and Ashley Peterson took first place in the girls race as well. She finished ahead of second place Alayna Franson from Rhinelander by about 45 seconds.

Talking with Franson after the meet, she was trying to pace herself with Peterson and went out a little too fast.

"I can't go into it thinking she's going to beat me by 20 seconds. I've got to pace myself right at the start. I've got to be okay with her having a couple yards on me at the start," said Franson.

She will be able to try that new pacing method next Saturday at the GNC Meet in Eagle River.
