The Spencer girls cross country team won its second meet of the year in Estherville Tuesday night, as northwest Iowa felt another scorching day of heat. The cross country season hasn't escaped summer's heatwave but the Lady Tigers were able to best Algona by eight points (61-69) to capture the ELC Invite.

Junior Cierra Guerrero won her first meet of the season, turning in a time of 15:21.13 to lead the Tigers. Daly Tighe delivered a third top-10 finish in 16:30.05, with Kari Kramer (16th), Sara Bauermeister (17th) and Kendra Bauermeister (18th) finishing together to give Spencer its lowest score of the season.

"Cierra had a great night, she knocked 10 seconds off her time here last year," Spencer girls coach Kurt Bauermeister said. "She showed a lot of guts running so well in the heat. Daly also dropped her time by about 10 seconds from last year. It was a great team effort."

Claire Eagan finished in 22nd place with a time of 17:54 and Brooklyn Gillman took 35th in 19"05. Emily Coldren was second in the JV race, clocking in at 18:18. The Tigers next cross country meet is Tuesday, Sept. 11, in Storm Lake.

Okoboji's Clare Eckard finished sixth overall in a time of 16:04. Olivia Albright was 15th in 17:09 for the Pioneers.
