The boys ran well and placed 7th with one runner, Isaac Robertson ’19, qualifying for state. ” It feels great [knowing that I’ve made it to state],” Robertson said, “The whole team has been working hard and for it to be paying off like this is great.”

Girls’ team captain Emily Burkley said, ” It’s definitely a good feeling knowing I made it to state. It’s relieving and fun knowing that my last race will be at state.”

Our runners will be competing again on Friday, October 20th at Kearney.
