The Iowa Falls-Alden/AGWSR Cadet harriers have been building their confidence all season. When they saw who they would be running against at a Class 3A State Qualifier in Independence Thursday, the outlook was tempered some by the quality of the field.
“There were some deep squads,” head coach Michael Rottink said. “There were very few runners not on the State qualifying teams to qualify individually. We are often one of the larger schools at our regular season meets, so as a smaller 3A program, the State qualifier is always a great challenge for us.”
