Boys Varsity Cross Country, Girls Varsity Cross Country · Ashton Gibbs and Paxton Oberhaus Named Putters Athletes of the Week


Ashton is a sophomore on the Lakota East Boys Cross Country Team.

On August 31st, Ashton joined the Lakota East sub-17:00 club when he ran a 16:59.5 for the 5k (3.1 mile) course at the Lebanon Running Warrior Invitational.  This amazing effort gave Ashton a 12th place finish in a competitive field of 193 runners.  This was the 32nd fastest time recorded in the history of Lakota East High School.  Ashton is not finished yet, expect him to make a significant climb up the all-time list by the end of the Fall.



Paxton is a junior on the Lakota East Girls Cross Country Team.  

Paxton has started her 2019 cross country campaign off with a bang.  She is looking to make a huge statement this Fall.  At the Troy Invitational on September 7th, Paxton had a lifetime best performance when she ran 19:43.7 for the 5k (3.1 mile) course that was not producing many fast times on that given day.  That effort placed Paxton 8th overall in a huge field of 290 athletes.  This improves Paxton’s 23rd fastest time in school history by 1 second.  Expect Paxton to make a big jump up the all-time list by the end of the season.
