Girls' XC team wins Region 4A behind Byers first place finish

Weather conditions weren't the most desirable during the Region 4A cross country meet that was held at the Chamberlain Country Club on Thurs., Oct. 13. However poor weather conditions did not deter the Cubs from qualifying all of their varsity participants for the State Cross Country Meet to be held in Sioux Falls on Sat., Oct. 20.

In the girls' 5K race, Ella Byers out-paced all other runners with a time of 18:23, a personal best time for this season. Byers' teammates Allison Hough, an all-state runner from last year, finished in third place with a time of 18:56, and seventh grader, Kinsey Evans will participate in her first state event after finishing in fourth place with a time of 19:28. Ella Phillips crossed the line in 11th place with a time of 20:59, Abby Hutmacher had a time of 21:15 for 16th place and Shepherd recorded a time of 22:12 for 7th place.
