State XC: Girls third place at Class A championships


NORTHFIELD — The Perham girls cross country team improved on a seventh place finish in 2012 placing third at this year’s Minnesota Class A state cross country meet at St. Olaf.

The result is the best finish for Perham since back-to-back runners-up finishes in 2008-09.

“We, definitely, wanted to go out and win it, but we knew it was going to be tough,” Head Coach Jeff Morris said.
