Cross Country sends seven runners to state meet

By: Caitlin Nimmich.

On Wednesday, October 18, the student body gathered in the gym for a quick pep rally/send-off for the cross country runners that punched their ticket into the state meet. The girls’ team qualified as a team and those six include Emily Burkley ’18, Autumn Branson ’19, Josephine Blatny ’20, Kacy Starck ’21, Mikwena Lierman ’21, and Eric Mosher ’21. Isaac Robertson ’19 qualified on his own at the district meet.

If you can, go support these athletes up in Kearney! The girls run Friday at noon and Isaac will run following that race at 1.
