Perham Minnesota 222 2nd Avenue SE 56573

The Perham girls cross country team has received their first-ever national ranking at No. 24 among Division II small schools.

The recognition adds more moxy to a team with a lot of momentum at mid-season having completed an impressive performance at last weekend's Griak in St. Paul, heading in to their annual home meet this Thursday, all on a quest for the team's first-ever state cross countrychampionship.
