Bowling Green Cross Country Teams Are Headed To State

Girls Claim District Championship For 14th Straight Year; Boys Finish Second, Qualify For For 15th Time In 17 Years

Both Bowling Green cross country teams are bound for state following their performances in the Class 2 District 3 meet at the Pike County Fairgrounds on Saturday.

This is the 14th consecutive year the girl’s team has captured the district title and it’s the 15th time in the past 17 years that the boy’s team has qualified for state as a team.

Coach Matt Chance pointed out it was another solid performance from the girls.

“They have had a tremendous season and they are motivated to run well at the state meet. I still think this team can improve as a group. If that happens it can be a very special day at the state meet,” Chance remarked. “These girls are tough and there is no doubt in my mind that they will give everything they have at the state meet.”

Chance added it was a great accomplishment for the boy’s team to qualify with a second place finish.

“Several of these teams beat us early in the season, but over the last month the boys really improved to put themselves in position to qualify,” Chance said.

The state meet will be Saturday at Oak Hills Golf Course in Jefferson City. The boys run at 11:55 a.m. and the girls run at 1:05 p.m.
