Placing second at Sectionals, the Girls’ Cross Country team advanced to Regionals, Oct. 15. Along with many personal records, five girls placed in the top 20 at Sectionals— Elora Bliss, freshman; Eva Olson, sophmore; juniors, Riley Mach and Riley Jorge and senior, Mary Buck. After placing sixth at Regionals, the team lost the tie-breaker against Lowell, ending their season. Individually, Bliss, Buck, Mach and Jorge will be advancing to Semi-State tomorrow at New Prairie High School.

“This is definitely my fastest season yet,” Mach said. “I’m pretty happy with my overall performances, but there’s always races where you wish you did better.”
