Friday, the girls XC team of Kailee Sandoval, Ava Viegelahn, Isabel Spencer, Maddy Basham, Ella Kraus, Gabi Lutchka, Ella Easterday, Aspen Cook, Maggie Jenks and Aubrey Alford (only the top 7 girls competed) qualifies for the MHSAA State Finals XC Championship meet to be held at MIS in Brooklyn. The girls placed 3rd as a team with a slim 9 point spread between first and third places. The team was led by Sandoval, finishing 3rd, followed by Viegelahn, Spencer, Basham, Kraus, Lutchka and Easterday. The girls had an excellent day with Viegelahn, Spencer, Basham and Lutchka all ousting personal best times!
Last night, the girls were at it again, competing in the all-county J. Chris Jensen Memorial XC meet. Finishing with top performances were Kailee Sandoval (3rd place with a personal best course time of 19:11 on a tough Ella Sharp course), Madison Basham (10th place), Ella Kraus (19th), Gabi Lutchka (23rd) and Ella Easterday (24th). Congratulations to the ladies for their performances in 2 tough, back-to-back meets. Wishing these girls the best of luck at MIS on Saturday!
