Gallery and Recap: Cross Country Competes in State

Recap by Brooklyn Terrill

Cross country boys placed ninth out of 13 this past weekend at state at Rim Rock Farm in Lawrence, Kansas. The girl’s team did not place overall.

“With state, we prepared well, but you never know what can happen on that given day,” Coach Beaham said. “Unfortunately the entire team didn’t have their ideal race. It resulted in a finish that our athletes and coaches were disappointed with.”

Senior John Arnspiger placed eighth with a time of 16:44. Following him were senior Jack Young and sophomore Griffin Keeter, coming in at 18th and 24th with times of 16:56 and 17:06, respectively. Junior Ingrid Worth and freshman Kathleen Stanley ran in the girls race, coming in at 56th and 84th.

Though they did not win state like they had expected, they believe they still had an overall successful season.

“This season was full of great performances,” Arnspiger said, “We were champions in four of our nine meets. The team itself had great chemistry and fraternity. Despite our placement at state, which was definitely lower than we expected, I would call this season the most fulfilling season of my career.”

The team will wrap up the season with a banquet on Nov. 7 in the SME Cafeteria.
