NORTHFIELD -- The girl's cross country team fought an uphill battle all season with consistent performances, but a lack of recognition for their efforts.


The team combined to finish only 40 points from the podium at the state meet, blasting past their No. 9 state ranking, their highest of the season, to finish seventh.

"We're pretty young," Head Coach Jeff Morris said. "We needed about another 10 seconds from each girl, but I am super excited for the girls."
