LAWRENCE The cross country meet at Rim Rock in Lawrence beat the rains Saturday morning and went off without a hitch. Over 100 schools from six different states were present, including Iola and Humboldt High.
It was another good meet for the Mustangs, who had to overcome some adversity early on. The girls were without Ella Taylor, and the boys had to make due without Jesse Taylor.
Despite missing Taylor, the Fillies were able to compete at a high level. Thirty-two schools fielded full teams and 240 runners competed. The Fillies finished in the middle of the pack at 15th. The girls number-one runner, Rachel Bycroft, finished 48th with a time of 22:18. Kelsey Morrison followed in 90th (23:20), Elanie Sturgeon 101st (23:52), Averie Sharon, 122nd (24:26), Josie Plumlee 129th (24:46), and Audrey Coltrane 130th (24:47).
