In a field of 118 racers at the Section 8A cross-country meet, the #2-ranked, defending state champion Yellowjackets placed all seven runners in the top 14, including the top five scoring runners all in the top 10, to run away, quite literally, with the section title and their 10th consecutive trip to the state meet.


The victory keeps an amazing span of dominance going for the Perham boys team. Pack leader Brady Speicher directed this year's section effort.
