Hendee, Keehn, Linscott lead way at Alumni Run

Senior Alex Hendee is a school record holder in the 3,000-meter run and earned all-MIAA and all-region honors for Fort Hays State University last year.

In 2011-12, sophomore Cory Keehn provided what cross country coach Jason McCullough labeled probably one of the better freshman seasons of any Tiger runner. Keehn was an all-conference honorable mention selection in cross country.

Junior Gentry Linscott redshirted last season because of injury, but has ran well in the preseason, including a victory at the team's annual time trial during the first week of fall camp.

On Saturday, Hendee, Keehn and Linscott, expected to be the Tigers' top three runners, led the way at the yearly FHSU Alumni Run.

The current team and alumni were supposed to run at Sand Plum Nature Trail, approximately a mile from St. Fidelis Catholic Church in Victoria.

The trail, created by Victoria's Joe Brungardt, is the new home for Tiger cross country meets this fall. But the meet was moved to Victoria High School's track because of soggy conditions from heavy rains.

The runners competed a 3-kilometer run and Hendee finished in 8 minutes, 42 seconds.

"He can shut it off and when it's time to run, he can turn it back on," McCullough said.

Keehn was just behind at 8:43.

"He exceeded our expectations a little bit," McCullough said of Keehn. "He had some injury problems throughout the year and so we just had to back off with him and just be gentle with his training.

"He really did run well," McCullough added. "State track of his senior year, that's when he really started to explode. Thankfully, we had already signed him and he was coming here to Fort Hays. He really had a spectacular freshman year."

Senior Tanner Christensen, a redshirt last year because of injury, was third in 9:03. Kyle Calvin, a junior from Ness City, was fourth in 9:06.

"Kyle has had some good races and he is also had to struggle a little bit over the last two years, but I think his training is coming around this year and I think that he should be in our top seven," McCullough said.

The Tiger women ran either two kilometers or three. Linscott won the 3K race in 10:49, one second ahead of FHSU alum Jackie Jamison, from Quinter.

"A lot of her problems resulted from overtraining when she was a little bit banged up, and I think now, this summer, she has trained a little smarter, not quite as many miles," McCullough said. "That's basically what she needs. She is just an exercise freak. She loves to exercise and loves to run, so I think has kind of hurt her in past."

Sophomore Alex Nelson was third in 10:58, while junior Kylie Gaughan, from Hays High School, was fourth in 11:07. Freshman Sarah Snider won the 2K race in 7:20.

"Gentry had a really good track season this past year, as did Kylie," McCullough said. "Alex Nelson, she got injured right after track, but she is healthy now. She looks to be one of top girls, too."
