Cerro Gordo Bement cross country State qualifiers Dylan Howell and Will Fuson are together before the IHSA State Cross Country meet last Saturday at Detweiler Park in Peoria.
On an absolutely miserable day, the IHSA State Cross Country meet was held at Detweiler Park in Peoria on Saturday, November 5.
CGB junior Dylan Howell and freshman Will Fuson ran in a downpour on a windy, wet and muddy three mile course.
Dylan finished 65th in a time of 16:47.99 and Will was 70th at 16:52.88. Although those times were not as fast as I’m sure they would have liked, considering the conditions no one on the course was going to have a PR.
Their places out of a total of 258 competitors and making it through Regionals and Sectionals to qualify for State is something to be proud of.
Both runners will be back next season and can use the experience they gained throughout this season to set and achieve new goals.
