To follow up my previous article about cross country ending, five Wildcat runners qualified for regionals. For the girls, Maddi Szymanski (19:15.31) finished second overall, accompanied by Emma Dickens. For the boys, Hayden Allen (17:20.58) finished 15th overall advancing to MHSAA Regionals. Not too far behind, qualified Jacob Kochanksi (17:43.82), along with Hunter Hitzelburger (17:49.78). The Wildcats team finished 6th overall, behind Bay City Wester who claimed 1st. Regionals will be held Saturday, Oct. 31 at White Pines Middle school in Saginaw. We hope to see some of our runners qualify for states and look forward to competing.
