Most of the Bobcat Cross Country runners finished their season last Thursday at the D6 District meet in Bridgeport. Nineteen schools were represented at the meet and only the top 6 runners on each team were allowed to compete. In order to qualify for the state meet, runners either needed to be in the top 15 as an individual, or in the top three as a team.
The Girls Varsity were the first to run and Senior Jori Stewart held her place in the top 15 the entire race. Her goal at the starting line was to earn a place at the state meet in Kearney and that is exactly what she did. She ended up placing 12th with a time of 22:57. Catherine Bryner finished in 39th and Destiny Hanson finished in 46th. We look forward to having both of them back next season.
The Boys Varsity ran next and for the final time of his cross country career, Isaiah Bryner paced the Bobcats to a 6th place team finish. He placed 24th with a time of 20:03. John Ansley finished second for the Bobcats, finishing in 33rd with a time of 20:31. Jacob Clouse was 35th at 20:38, Braden Christopherson was 38th at 20:52, Jaydon Walker was 39th in 21:01, and Luke Honstein finished in 63rd with a time of 22:45.
We would like to thank our seniors for the hard work they have put in this year. We have appreciated their leadership and wish them the best of luck as they finish their senior year.
Jori Stewart competes at the State Meet in Kearney on Friday, October 25th. Her race is scheduled to start at 2:00 PM CT.
