Rams Hobson, Tipton, Hornet Krupp earn all-state honors at finals

BROOKLYN – Montrose’s Remington Hobson and Peyton Tipton, and New Lothrop’s Courtney Krupp earned all-state honors at the Division 3 cross country finals on Saturday, Nov. 4 at Michigan International Speedway.

Krupp finished 14th in 19:10.4, while Hobson was 18th in 19:20.6 in the girls’ race. This marked the third time in four years that Hobson earned all-state recognition, while it was Krupp’s second all-state honor. Both are seniors.

“Remington has had an amazing career by making it to the state finals all four years and earning all-state honors three times,” said Montrose coach Tim Hobson. “I’m sad it’s over, but I’m so proud of her as a runner and as a person.” As a team, the Ram girls finished 22nd with 559 points. Hobson led the way, followed by Paige Allard, 83rd in 21:03.1, Savana McDowell, 142nd in 22:29.7, Amber Wing, 157th in 23:11.3, and Torrey Hobson, 163 in 23:21.2. Also running were Hannah Robinson (23:21.9) and Lindsey Field (23:40.8).

This was the second time in the last three years the Lady Rams have qualified as a team.

Chesaning had two runners in the girls’ race. Senior Samantha Hill finished 68th in 20:22.4, and sophomore Julia Skaryd was 70th in 20:22.9.

In the boys’ race, the Rams finished 11th with 296 points, their highest team finish in school history.

Tipton, a senior, was 15th in 16:33.9, making him the first Ram boy to earn all-state honors. Also scoring for the Rams were senior Jeffrey Klopf II, 35th in 17:05.7, senior Eric Vandefifer, 69th in 17:25.5, sophomore Joe Wade, 84th in 17:37.2, and junior Peyton Hobson, 93rd in 17:46.7. Also running were seniors Kade Meganck (18:46.6) and Camerin Miller (19:28.1).

“I’m really going to miss our graduating seniors next year,” Coach Hobson said. “They had a great season and set the bar high for teams to follow.”
