The Eden Valley-Watkins-Kimball cross-country team had its last conference meet Tuesday evening, Oct. 15, at Albany.
We don’t have all the results yet, but we do know that KAHS junior (and novice runner this year) finished the meet in first place with a time of 15:56. She is the Central Minnesota Conference champion heading into the Section meet Oct. 24 at Long Prairie-Grey Eagle.
Along with Emily, 13 other varsity runners will advance to the section meet: Denzel Atherton, Grace Kopitzky, Brooke Winter, Stephanea Roeser, Maria Roeser, and Seahara Mancini; alternates Hannah Holmberg and Emily Utecht; Cameron Flaschenriem, Tyler Neu, Joey Kuechle, Matthew Notch, and Bret Mattice (if he is not still on the injured list).
Congratulations to Emily and the entire EV-W-K cross-country team on a great season, and good luck in Sections and at State.
