CONNELL — Josie Lonai placed third in the Connell Invite cross country meet Saturday to lead McLoughlin High School after running the 5,000-meter course in 20:06.1.

Riverside High School from Chattaroy, Wash., won the girls title out of 13 teams.

Susie Romero-Diaz was the next Pioneer to cross, finishing 11th in 21:34.0.

“Both Josie and Susie had great days,” Mac-Hi coach John Milleson said. “They both had personal bests.”

On the boys side, Austin Cousineau led Mac-Hi with a 28th-place finish in 18:20.6. Cameron Johnson of Southridge High School won the boys race in 17:10.3.

Riverside also won the boys team title.

Mindy Harmon (28:32.5) was the other Pioneer representative in the girls race.
