MARION -- The Marion cross country teams finished up their season at Regional 30-4 in Shepherd Friday night competing well but falling short of their goal of qualifying as a team or as individuals for the Division 4 State meet at MIS in Brooklyn.

"The ladies finished in sixth position," Marion coach Jason Keeler said. "Finishing out their season and career with a season best time were seniors Alexis Salisbury and Riley Kischnick. Both have ran since sixth grade and we are incredibly proud of and thankful for their efforts, accomplishments and the impact they have had on the program.

"While the boys didn't finish a full team they did accomplish quite a feat. Three out of four boys finished the last two meets with personal best times and our third runner was only off his PR by five seconds. Congrats to Aidan Timko, Eric Williams, and Trey Davis on finishing with double PRs. We made some great progress over the course of the season and look forward to taking an even bigger jump next year."

Evart's Kincade DuBreuil and Pine River's Jayce Methner qualified for the boys state meet.
