Griffin Petersen competes at State XC.

It was a snowy end for the cross country season at Hart Ranch in Rapid City. The start times of each division of races for the State Cross Country Meet were moved up for impending weather.

Griffin Petersen finished the year, running in the Class B division, placing 23rd out of 124 runners with a time of 18:27.84. Cody Larson of Warner took home the Class B boys race with a time of 15:54.61.

“While we were hoping for a higher finish, Griffin’s goal, from the beginning of the year, was to medal at the State Meet,” said Coach Sieck. “We had a great cross country season and I could not be more proud of all our Charger runners.”
