Cross country girls finish 2nd at Silver Lake

The cross country team opened up its season Saturday, running on a rather rainy morning in Silver Lake. For the girls team, freshman Payton Wurtz had a great opening run, taking 2nd place in her first high school meet with a time of 20:59. Junior Rebekah Stuhlsatz took 6th at 22:54. These two are looking to be a dynamic running duo — Stuhlsatz having state experience her freshman and sophomore years of high school already, placing 11th in 2019 and 14th in 2020. “I want to go to state this year, but I really want the whole team to go with me. I also want to crack the top-10 at state this year,” Stuhlsatz said.

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.
