Boys Varsity Cross Country, Girls Varsity Cross Country · Knoper and Collier at Cross Country Semi-State

Two Western Boone cross country runners competed at the IHSAA Semi-State meet at Shelbyville on Saturday.

Audrey Knoper represented Western Boone well in the girls’ race and finished in a time of 19:26.9.  Her 37th-place finish in the field of 179 runners was the highest-ever finish by a Western Boone girl at a semi-state meet.

In the boys’ race, Colton Collier started well but had difficulty in the latter half of the race and ended up finishing in a still-respectable time of 17:55.7 in 138th.
