Out of almost 900 runners at the Hesston cross-country meet Thursday, Marion runners Timothy Knolla, Jared Hague, and McKenzee Remmers all were swift enough to bring home medals.
“There were 50 high school teams from all over the state,” Coach Rebecca Hofer said. “I am very proud of those who ran.”
Hofer took six runners to the Hesston meet. Marion does not compete against many of those teams anywhere but at Hesston, Hofer said. Teams were from all over the state and ranged in size from 1A to 6A.
The high school boys’ 5K results were: Timothy Knolla, 8th, 18:32.91; Jared Hague, 19th, 19:36.81; Quinton Hett, 26th, 21:32.32; Seth Savage, 31st, 23:16.25; and Taylor Fahey, 35th, 23:52.06.
The high school girls’ 4K results were: McKenzee Remmers, 14th, 17:31.65; Brittany Hett, 39th, 22:42.86.
The next meet will be Thursday at Peabody.
