Okawville Cross Country Teams Off and Running in Fall Season
Okawville’s cross country teams were in action last week, with the harriers competing in events at New Athens and Mascoutah.
Last Monday’s meet at New Athens was rescheduled from Monday to Tuesday due to rain, and the race’s distance was shortened to 2.2 miles.
The Lady Rockets had two top ten finishers in that race, with Lydia Luechtefeld finishing third overall with a time of 15:59, and Chloe Tepe coming in sixth with a time of 16:17.
Cindy Snyder was Okawville’s next best finisher at 20th overall (17:39). Sarah Cook turned in the 26th best time at 18:09.
Also competing for the Lady Rockets were Madelyn Epplin (53rd – 20:30), Sidney Charles (54th – 20:32), Kylie Buehler (56th – 20:39), Nora Wood (27th – 20:39), and Lexie Todd (76th – 22:11).
