The Cross Country team ran at the state meet in Wamego on Saturday with both the girls and boys placing tenth.
Head Coach Roger Alderman said “The boys ran solid races overall, but I know they were hoping for more.” The boys have run in state for the last three years and are aiming for four.”
The boys finished their season with a record of 50-35.
In the girls race, freshman Rebekah Stuhlsatz placed 11th, making her the 5th girl All-State runner in the last six years with a time of 20:56, a personal record for her on a regulation course.
The Cross Country team had run the Wamego course before, but the meet was much bigger this time around. “There were a lot more people there and you don’t know if they’re older than you or not,” Stuhlsatz said.
The girls team finished higher than they were ranked coming in finishing their season with a record of 42-27.
