Cross Country Takes Off Into Season

The Fairbury Cross Country team began conditioning on Aug. 8. The cross country team returns quite a bit of experience for both the girls and boys team. On the boys side they return five varsity runners from last year’s team. Leading that group will be Garret Ragland ’17. Ragland  was a state qualifier for the Jeffs last year.

The girls team looks to continue its dominance as they have qualified for state as a team each of the last three years. From last year’s state qualifying team they return Shaye Stall ’17, Lilibeth Estrada ’17, Emily Burkely ’18 and Autumn Branson ’19. The first competition for the cross country team will be Sept. 1 at the Superior Invite.
