Rebecca Stuhlsatz and Sienna Jones ended the season with 14th and 42nd place finishes at State.
Stuhlsatz ran a time of 20:40 and Jones 22:11. Both runners cut around a minute off of their regional times. This was Stuhlsatz’s second state competition and Jones’ first.
The meet was held in Victoria for the first time instead of the usual location of Wamego.
“The Victoria course is a new one for us, and probably not as challenging as most of the ones we’ve run on, but it was good to see these girls step up and cut as much time as they did,” coach Alderman said.
Stuhlsatz and Jones were both able to cut around a minute off of their regional times.
“I feel like I have more confidence in myself and persistence to keep working hard to do better each year,” Stuhlsatz said.
“The work we do between now and next fall can put us in the position to compete with the best teams in the State and I think we’ve got a group that’s willing to put in the work,” coach Alderman said.
