On Saturday, November 2, our Vikings traveled to National Trails Raceway to compete in states. Among a weekend full of CA athletic accomplishments, three of our runners were Division 2 state qualifiers: Regan Cornelius’21, Annalise Grammel’20, and Luke Nester.
Nester was 16th at the mile, poised to make all-state, but was knocked down, causing him to lose precious seconds. He still managed to place 107th out of the pack of 182.
Grammel placing 90th out of 176 with a time of 20:14, just behind Cornelius who placed 69th and ran a 20:03.
Grammel holds the school record in the 5k.
Although the results were disappointing, personal bests were achieved and a school record was broken this season.
