Torch Coverage

The Girls’ Cross Country team is advancing to the state after placing second in their state qualifying meet. “I feel like we have a good shot getting third place this time around because we only missed it by a point last year. “ Allison Culver sr., said.

“This year have a lot more underclassman this season, we have two freshmen running for us. Last season we started really, really good but we didn’t finish the season as well as we started it. This season we started out kinda slow but we are getting better so hopefully we will do good at the end. I think we will do at the safe qualifying meet and get our banner we have a lot of potential to do well at state.” Alyssa Averhoff sr., Said

Laura Felds and Ali Meyer are the two freshmen that contributed to the varsity Girls’ cross country meet.

“We are all friends so it doesn’t make much difference that I’m a freshman but sometimes I feel pressure because I play soccer so I have never been in cross country before so I don’t know if it’s because I’m on varsity or that it’s my first year doing cross country.” Ali Meyer said.

Mark Jensen, Girls’ Cross country coach says that this year’s team is different than last year’s team. The team this year is much younger than the previous team which poses some challenges but he is determined that they will place a least in the top 10 in state.
