BENNE ANDERSON - STATE CHAMPION
Benne Anderson won the Division 1 State Cross Country Championship today in tough conditions at the Michigan International Speedway. He executed the race plan perfectly running a conservative race and kicking the last 100m of the race to take the win in 15:17. Due to the high winds he took the first mile slowly in 5:12, mile 2 in 4:57, before running the last mile in 4:39 with Seth Norder from Grand Haven. He sprinted to victory the last 100m of the race to earn the win by 1.63 seconds.
Selma Anderson had her best race of the year and earned her second All State honor to go with the All State honor from her freshman year. Selma got out well and held her position throughout the race. She closed fast to finish 12th.
Liam Walters had a solid day, but got caught in the pack at the start. He moved up steadily and finished 41st. Liam has had a breakthrough season improving his PR by 42 seconds and today was some valuable experience for next year.
Coach Edbright "Well done everyone! I am very proud of your seasons."
All three will be racing next weekend at some of the post-season races. Benne and Liam will be heading down to NXR in Terra Haute and Selma will be running the Michigan Meet of Champions.
