State Cross Country

Ellie Meyer (No. 4807), Teah Miller (No. 4808) and Abby Harding (No. 4805) will all be running in the State Meet in Fort Dodge this Friday. For Meyer, it will be her fourth meet and a chance to improve on last year's 10th place medal. For Miller and Harding, sophomores, it will be their first taste of the the big run.

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.
