MONROE - Nick Baumann didn't want to wait until the final sprint to make his move to pass Dubuque Wahlert junior Jacob Berning in the 20th annual Bruess Invitational. As the Monroe junior ran across the bridge at Twining Park Monday, he was confident the final 800 meters was going to be the right time to make a surge. The move paid off as Baumann cruised to the championship of the 5,000-meter season-opening race in a time of 17 minutes, 12.2 seconds on a muggy day with the temperature in the mid 80s.
