1A Cross Country State Qualifier in Jesup

Posted: Updated:

The road to the state cross country meet for the boys and girls runs through 20 sites-- including an amazing 28 team 1A State qualifier in Jesup.

Nearly two hundred runners toed the line in the boys race--but it would soon turn into a battle between the top two guys in the state.

Bellevue's Andrew Meyer and Denver's Kyle Kehoe who both finished in the top ten at last year's state cross country meet separated themselves from the pack...

And then it was Denver's Kehoe pulling away to win in a fine time of 16 minutes and 9 seconds.... Meyer was second.

In the girls race... There was a bit of a surprise... As North Tama's  Abi Watson ran out to a big lead over  North Linn's favored Nicole Miller and a very good field.

And the Red Hawk Abi Watson led from start to finish---winning the race in a good time of 15 minutes and 17 seconds...

Nicole Miller hangs on to take second....
