If nothing else, the Mandan Kiwanis cross country meet on Saturday was anything but run-of-the-mill.

While team victories by Bismarck’s boys and Century’s girls may be construed as just another day at Mandan Municipal Golf Course, the conditions and individual winners made it anything but ordinary.

Dickinson junior Jackson Binstock sloshed through a driving rain to win the boys title, and Bismarck senior Lexi Zeis was practically dancing though the rain to win the girls race.

Binstock’s win was a changing of the guard. With last year’s champion Jake Leingang of Bismarck out of the picture, the boys race was up for grabs.

Binstock took advantage of the opportunity, edging out three Bismarck High runners for the title. He crossed the soggy finish line in 16:01.56 and was pleased with his time.

“It was nice out there,” Binstock said. “The rain cooled things off, and there was no wind. I would rather run in the rain than in the heat.”

Binstock said the pace was slow early, but soon picked up.

“I started off a little slower than I wanted to, but at the two-mile mark I started picking it up a little bit. I usually start out fast, but I tried starting out a little slower to keep my energy for the whole race.”

Binstock’s winning time was nearly five seconds faster than runner-up Matt Gotta of Bismarck. Gotta (16:05.94), Sam Clausnitzer (16:09.51) and Preston Lerew (16:11.50) went 2-3-4 and helped Bismarck extend a winning streak that dates back to the first meet of 2005.

“Every weekend we’re going to see a different challenge up front, and for us to have a number of guys competing for that is all good,” Bismarck co-coach Darrell Anderson said.

The girls race followed a similar pattern, with three runners pulling away from the pack and coming home together. The conditions were perfect for the winner.

“I love running in the rain. It’s my favorite,” said Zeis, whose strong closing effort carried her to a win over defending champion and teammate Brittany Brownotter. “It’s cold, you don’t feel hot. It’s like perfect.”

Zeis finished in 14:08.37, while Brownotter came in at 14:12.14. She finished second to Brownotter last season by one second. Century’s Jordan Jacob was third in 14:17.70. No one else was within 35 seconds of the top three runners.

“Me and Brittany held back a little bit. The strategy was not to go out too hard,” Zeis said. “But after the first loop we started to pick it up.”

Zeis said it’s the first time she and Brownotter had gone 1-2 in a meet.

Jacobs’ third-place effort helped Century’s girls to the team title with 42 points. Dickinson had 81, followed by Mandan with 123, Bismarck 129 and Shiloh Christian 206.
