Elsberry traveled to the Fulton Invitational on Saturday with twenty-nine schools competing. The EHS varsity boys continued their fine season with a third-place finish. Dashaun Dodson finished in fourth place in a talented field of 142 runners. Also earning medals for the Indians were Nolan Wilson (16th place), and Jedidiah Heras (22nd). Strong races by Ezekiel Byers (60th), Noah Hausgen (62nd), and Judah Byers (94th) completed the team scoring for the running Indians. Dodson, who is being recruited by college programs, and Wilson also medaled at Fulton in 2021. This year, Heras turned in the third-fastest time among freshmen running in the varsity race. Medaling for the EHS varsity girls was Ellie Hartley who finished in twenty-first place in a strong field of 128 runners. Hartley finished in the top five of all freshmen girls competing in varsity competition. Chloe Howard and Ali Hausgen competed in the junior varsity race for EHS. Both earned medals with Howard finishing eighth and Hausgen running thirteenth.
