Voigt earns third place medal at state
Three members of the Gorilla cross country team made the trip to Huron on Saturday for the State Cross Country Meet. Aaron Voigt, Emma Thomas and Megan Warnke all earned their spots at this meet by placing top 20 in region competition on October 12th. The Class B girls were the 3rd race of the day at 1:00 p.m. One hundred-sixteen of the top girls from across the state competed in this race with Emma finishing in 49th place with a time of 22:46. As a seventh grader attending her first state meet, Emma was feeling pretty nervous, but came through with a nice race and is looking forward to many more trips to this event in the future. As a sophomore, Megan raced in her fourth consecutive state meet, powering through some severe ankle pain to run a time of 23:52 and placed 73rd overall.
