An IMS cross country runner took second at the annual Dutch Invite in Pella. The meet was on the campus of Central College. IMS’ Bill Spencer, won the 1A state championship in cross country last year and Saturday he and the 1600 and 3200 Drake Champion Johnny Fuller ran with each other away from the pack. The two traded the lead but Fuller would pull away towards the end and win by eight seconds. Spencer finished second and ran 30-seconds faster than his sixth place finish last year. Jesse Shetler was also running for IMS at the meet and he ended up 44th out of 112 runners. IMS will next run at Fairfield on Thursday.
