Seeger High School 10th 306

The girls had their first cool weather meet of the season and the times really showed it. In this Illinois race, a lot is different from out normal meets. First, Illinois only runs 3 miles instead of 5K (3.11 miles). Second, this race is a road race throught the streets of the town of St. Joseph Illinois. We also do not see 26 of the teams throughout our Indiana season. While there were only 24 complete teams there were 29 teams represented. For this young Patriot squad, a 10th place finish against several ranked Illinois schools is a great showing. Jennifer Romero was 9th with an 18:22 (she was the second freshman finisher), Allison High was 42nd with 20:02, Libby Smith was 62nd with 21:00. The top 10 receive a trophy, then 11-100 get a medal. Lauren McBride was next on the team with a 22:16, then Scout Puterbaugh with 22:24, and Leah Kirkpatrick with 23:35.
