This weekend both the Boys and Girls Cross Country teams for St. Edmond will run at the State Meet here in Fort Dodge. Both teams took 1st place in the District meet in Holstein last week. The Girls team has now qualified for State seven consecutive times. The Boys team is returning fr the first time in a few years. St. Edmond Coach Mike Szalat says their running with an increased confidence.
Coach Szalat says one of the major keys to their success has been depth on both teams.
St. Edmond’s Girls have been led this season by the 1,2 punch of Senior Aubrey Bemrich and Freshmen Michaela Leiting.
Coach Szalat says many of the former runners at St. Edmond have reached out and have displayed excitement about this year’s team.
