The Pierre T.F. Riggs Governors cross country team hosted the annual Pierre Invitational at Steamboat Park in Pierre on Friday.

The Govs girls were led by sophomore Jazzlyn Rombough, who placed fifth. Junior Autumn Iverson placed sixth. Rombough and Iverson were the lone Govs girls to compete in the varsity race.

Senior Hayden Shaffer led the Govs boys by placing second. Sophomore Jared Lutmer placed fourth, while senior Blake Judson placed eighth. Junior Brady Gere placed 13th to round out the Govs who placed in the Top 15.

The Govs cross country team will have quite some time off before they compete in the Sahli/Salmi Invitational at Lee Park Golf Course in Aberdeen next Thursday. That meet is scheduled to start at 3 p.m. CT.
