(Oakland) Riverside senior cross country runner Cade Cleaveland is the KSOM Athlete of the Week.
Cleaveland won his 3rd meet of the season on Monday when he outkicked St. Albert's Josh Sindelar at Woobine. Cleaveland ran a winning time of 16:55 at what coach Alex Oliver described as a very hilly course at Woodbine. Coach Oliver credits Cleaveland's success to the hard work he put in over the summer. Cleaveland put in over 150 miles during the offseason. Cleaveland has placed second in the four other meets this season that he hasn't won.
The Western Iowa Conference meet is coming up on Monday, October 10th. The meet will be held in Audubon, and with Cleaveland leading the way, Riverside will be a contender for the team title. Missouri Valley is expected to be their toughesh competitor at the conference meet.
