The State Cross Country Meet is no longer an overwhelming experience for Iowa Falls-Alden/AGWSR Cadet Ellie Meyer. The junior has been there three times now, and finally got her medal after finishing 123rd as a freshman and 31st as a sophomore. She placed 10th in Class 3A on Saturday in Fort Dodge
Coming in with a game plan to stay with three girls specifically helped. Meyer said Humboldt’s 16th-rated Bryce Gidel, fourth-ranked Kiki Connell of number 11 Charles City, and fifth-rated Gabby Moran of number one Dubuque Wahlert were her targets. Gidel edged her at the North Central Conference Meet.
