Just two points were the difference between tears and elation Saturday afternoon in a field outside of Ottawa.

For the Iola girls’ cross country team, it meant tears. For the third year in a row, the Fillies were edged out of a team spot at state after taking fourth place two points behind the qualifying third-place.

The Billings sisters — Junior Elka and freshman Ursula — both finished in the top 10, qualifying them for state.
