Lakeland Cross Country Runners Compete at State

On Saturday, November 1st, three runners from the Lakeland High School Cross Country Team qualified for the state meet in Jefferson City. Senior Colton Wilkins placed 15th in the Class 1 District 5 boys' race hosted by Hermitage High School at Pomme de Terre Dam. Senior Halie Kalberloh qualified by placing 7th and Freshman, Lana Fellhoelter placed 15th in the girls' race. The top 15 runners in each district race qualify for the state meet.

The state meet took place at Oak Hills Golf Course in Jefferson City on Saturday, November 8. Colton Wilkins placed 118th of 171 runners with a time of 19.53.46. This was Wilkins's second year in a row qualifying for the state meet.

Halie Kalberloh finished 46th with a time of 23:09.77, and Lana Fellhoelter placed 131st out of 152 runners with a time of 26:17.01. This was the first year qualifying for state for both Kalberloh and Fellhoelter.

Coach Steve Ritter commented, "We're very proud of all three of these runners. Colton helped set the tone for us to be more competitive as a team with his qualification for state last year. He helped pave the way for others to see what could be possible for our program. Halie and Lana, as well as Colton, worked very hard to get here. They logged a lot of miles outside the season, and with the support of their families and teammates did a great job of pushing hard to get to where they are." Ritter continued, "This race is so tough. It really is the toughest course for just about everyone, and the field is so competitive. There is a runner crossing the finish line on average every 2.5 seconds which leaves very little room for error. I've very proud to see what they have accomplished this season, and they were great representatives for Lakeland."
