The Cerro Gordo Bement cross country team ran in the annual Lincoln Prairie Conference held at Crowder Park in Bethany on Saturday, October 1.

The CGB boys took third place in the team standings with 66 points behind meet winner Arthur Lovington Atwood Hammond, 40, and second place Heritage, 51. Junior Dylan Howell again led the way for the Broncos finishing in second place in a time of 16:19.88. Will Fuson, a freshman finished in sixth in 16:34.38.
