McKenzi Maples also qualified for the state meet with her 5th place finish at districts.
The state meet will be held on Saturday November 7th in Jefferson City at Oak Hills golf course. Class 2 girls race will be at 9:40 and the boys race at 10:50. Awards ceremony at 11:10.
I will try to post a more detailed itinerary later this week.
Thank you to all the runners & Coach Clements who have made this such a great year. This is the fastest team we have ever had and some of the best kids I’ve ever coached. Thank you to all the alumni who still come out and run with the team and the parents who support these kids in such a demanding sport.
This weekend is going to be a blast!
