NORTHFIELD -- Cassie Beseman, in her final race as a Yellowjacket, led Perham, as she has all season, to a 10th place finish at the Class A State Cross Country Meet, Saturday, Nov. 5, in Northfield.


"It's bittersweet," Beseman said. "We ran well together, as a team."

The girls team improves on a 12th place finish at last year's state meet and also finished in front of Park Rapids, a team that bested them for this year's Section 8A title in Bagley.
