A few days later than expected the Cross Country team competed at sectionals and it was worth the wait. The boys started the day off with Collin Douglas leading the way by qualifying for states. Collin is the first boy since 2011 to go to states. The team ran strong finishing 5th overall, Jack Flowers finished his last race with a new pr at 18:30 and Malachi Ritter saved his best for the last race setting a new pr at 19:34.
The girls are the 2019 Section 2 Class D Champions and will be representing Berlin at States. The girls were led by Elsie Corbett who finished 5th overall. The trio of Hailey Beckwith, Brady Hills, and Sadie Giumarra locked the win by finishing 7, 8, 9. Hailey also set a new pr with a time of 20:53. Sam Rokjer finished out the top 5 for Berlin sealing the victory with a hard run race. The Berlin Girls XC program had finished runner up 6 times in Section 2 history and for the first time have brought home the Section 2 crown. Collin and the Varsity Girls XC team will compete at States on November 16th. Congrats to the entire team for a very successful season! Congratulations to everyone involved in the cross country program. See more photos.
