To state: Girls look for great finish

ANAMOSA– The setting is similar, as Solon takes aim at the 2012 Girls Cross Country State Meet Saturday at Fort Dodge. The team leader board is juggled a little, over last year’s team and individual finishes. However, a veteran Spartan lineup knows what to do; to improve on last year’s– and 2010’s– fourth place finish.
And they remember that only the top three teams are invited out on the deck overlooking the crowd to receive their trophies.

Solon boys miss cut for state cross country

ANAMOSA– For Solon’s Patrick McGill, it was a matter of a couple steps.
At the Oct. 18 district cross country meet, five runners already had finished. Only the first 10 automatically qualify for the state meet. Heading into the finish line chute, McGill was knotted up in a group of six, fighting for the next five spots. “It was close over the last 800 (meters). I passed him (Jack Murray of Clear Creek-Amana) about 30 feet before he passed me,” recalled McGill minutes after the race. “We were neck and neck. It was a pretty solid race.”
