After winning first place in the Region 1 Class 2A championship race, the boys varsity cross country team will travel to Lexington to compete in the state championship race on Saturday. This will be the fifth year in a row that the boys varsity team has competed in the state championship and they are saying goodbye to four seniors who have made a big impact on the program.
Noah Thomas, Colton Spencer, Austin Rouse and Sye Head have been to the state championships every year they have ran and have pushed the Logan County cross country program to the next level as they run their last race on Saturday.
“I’m excited because its state but I’m sad its my last. I’m going to do the best I can and as long as I do that I’ll have no regrets,” said senior Colton Spencer. “Cross country is the defining basis of who I am today. I’m just going to live in the moment with my boys.”
“We’re going to go out with a bang. I’m going to give it my all and leave it all on the course,” said senior Austin Rouse. “Cross country has been the highlight of my high school career. The people I run with are my best friends and family.”
“I’m stoked for state but I can’t believe it’s my last year. “I’m ready to make it the best out of all of them,” said senior Noah Thomas. “Cross country has made me who I am today and has made me a better person.”
Head coach Greg Howard has high hopes for the team and believes that this year they will place in the top four and earn a spot on the podium at state.
