WAVERLY – Spencer Moon earned all-region honors for the Simpson men’s cross country program on Saturday.

Moon, a freshman from South Central Calhoun, finished 30th for the Storm. Simpson was 10th overall as Wartburg won the NCAA Central Region team title.

With his finish, Moon became the first Storm freshman to earn all-region status since 1995. He finished in a time of 26:18.6.

“All season we felt we had one of the 10 best squads in the region, so it was great to see it showcased,” Webster City grad and Simpson head coach Heath Moenck said. “Spencer Moon’s performance was outstanding and one of our better freshman races in school history.”

Ryan Courtney, a Humboldt grad and former state cross country runner like Moon, was 73rd overall.
