Quotes: Kingery, “The top four girls brought home medals and the entire team ran well, even though we have been fighting illnesses this week. Oldenburg has been ranked and we were pleased to be close to them and even put our seventh runner in front of their fifth, but they were just too strong up front to be beaten today. I still see room for a lot of improvement and that is a good thing this time of year. Next week at Brown County will be a major test for this group. I’m looking forward to see how they respond.”
