Alexis cut a full minute off of her personal best to come in 8th, Justin Kissling cut 45 seconds off of his to come in 25th for the final medal spot in the boys race (don't believe the News Advocate that it was Ian, that's fake news), and Abby Kissling came in 17th to medal in the Middle School Race. Taylor Cordes fell JUST short of medaling, coming in 26th by 3 tenths of a second, and every middle schooler ran a new personal best.
