Marion cross-country runners stepped it up and went the distance Thursday at the league meet in Marion.
“I left the course a very happy coach,” coach Rebecca Hofer said. “We had wonderful weather and wonderful race times. We earned three individual medals and almost the entire team got new personal records.”
The high school boys’ 5K results were Timothy Knolla, 6th, 17:57; Jared Hague, 11th, 18:59; Quinton Hett, 27th, 21:12; Taylor Fahey, 28th, 21:4; and Seth Savage, 29th, 21:50.
The high school girls’ 4K results were McKenzee Remmers, 13th, 17:09; Kaylie Waner, 35th, 19:46; Shyla Harris, 42nd, 21:41; and Brittany Hett, 48th, 21:07.
Hofer said the regional meet is to be Saturday at Lake Afton by the dam in Goddard.
“The competition there will be pretty tough, so we will need to work hard as we prep,” Hofer said.
