It was a most memorable run for the Sunburst cross country team at last Saturday’s State Cross Country Championship in Great Falls. With half an inch of snow and temperatures in the 30s, Brooke Holland continued her success by medaling for the third straight year at the State Class C Girls Cross Country Championship. She came in 12th with a 21:52 time on the Eagle Falls Golf Course.
Jaden Koon was just four seconds from medaling at the Boys State Championship. He finished in 16th place with a 19:03 time.
Jaden had a great year and I am so proud of his huge improvement this year. He sacrificed his own training during his state training week to help the Refiner football team.
This year will definitely be remembered for the weather and the Refiner runners look forward to the challenge of bringing home two state medals next year.
