Sellars leads pack at Run For The Wildcats 5K

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

Thirty-seven area runners gathered at the Cassville Aquatic Park on Saturday, July 27 to compete in the inaugural Run For The Wildcats 5K, a fundraiser for the Cassville High School and Middle School cross country teams.

Chris Shore, the only coach in the history of the Cassville program and an army of volunteers hosted the event.

Cristian Sellars, a former All-State Southwest runner, who competes collegiately for Fontbonne University, in St. Louis, won easily in 19:30. Jessica Housekeeper, a former CHS runner, was the over-all women's champion, finishing 13th overall while posting a 23:45 on the rain- soaked trail.

"Water just adds character to the course," commented Shore.

The race was sponsored by Road ID, a company specializing in runner safety equipment. Road ID donated all the runner bibs plus gift coupons for the over-all champions and random drawings.
