The Cross Country team went to Macon to compete in the State Championship. A deep field and a tough course made for a fun and challenging day.
Maggie Dorminy on the girls side had the day's best showing at 22:37. Mary Ford Fitzjurls ran 25:09, Kaitlyn Sunderhaus ran 26:44, and Ry Hoffnagle ran 36:18. Brianna Kolhoff was injured on the course, so the team score did not count.
On the boys side, dependable Daniel McHugh led the way at 19:14, while Max Byrd was 20:07, Noah Falken was 21:30, Elijah Howerton was 21:38, Jacob Leonard was 23:04, Trey Walbridge was 24:03, and Jack Alston was 27:42. The boys finished 12 of 23.
Most coaches agreed the course was tough enough that runners lost about 45 seconds off their best paces of the year, so that puts the times into perspective.
