Ellie Meyer lost just two races all season. Both times, fourth-ranked Kiki Connell of Charles City finished ahead of her. That makes Connell target number one for the fifth-rated Iowa Falls-Alden/AGWSR Cadet senior as she prepares to run in her fourth Class 3A State Meet.
Connell isn’t the only one in Meyer’s sights. At last Wednesday’s Qualifier in Waverly, Meyer finished fourth behind Connell, Decorah’s eighth-ranked Rebecca Anderson, and seventh-rated Emma Hoins of Waverly-Shell Rock. That makes four targets, but there’s more.
