Boys cross country places third at regionals qualifying for state

Juniors Charlotte Caldwell and Meg McAfee also qualified for the state race

The cross country teams competed at regionals Saturday, Oct. 21. The meet was held at Johnson County Community College. The boys placed third overall which qualified the whole team for state. The girls placed fourth overall, with juniors Charlotte Caldwell and Meg McAfee qualifying for the state meet.

After qualifying individually for the state meet, Caldwell reflects on her race.

“Individually I did okay, I placed tenth overall,” Caldwell said. “It definitely was not my best race but it also was not my worst by any means. I am very excited to improve at the state meet next week.”

Similarly to Caldwell, junior Carter Cline explains how he thought he completed. 

“I had a really solid race,” Cline said. “I was able to put myself in a really good position which led me to be able to place fifth overall.”

Additionally, Caldwell was proud of how she and her team performed at the meet. 

“As a whole the girl’s team competed well. We all fought our hardest and even though we didn’t qualify I’m super proud of all my teammates,” Caldwell said. “We were in a super hard regional with four of the top five girls teams in the state.”

Looking back, Cline shares the highs and lows of the regional meet. 

“The best moment of the meet was when all the scores got added together and the boys and I figured out that we made state as a team,” Cline said. “The low was that the girl’s team missed qualifying for state by one place. We had really wished that our girl’s team would have qualified so that we would have both teams at state, it is more fun when we can have all of us go.”
