The Pekin cross country teams traveled to the massive classic held at Forest Park in St.Louis.

“Rain and lots of mud characterized this years meet,” explained head coach Davis Eidahl. “With five days of solid rain and many races, mud was everywhere. The one good thing was it stopped raining for the varsity races.”

Girls

“Our girls finished in a good pack toward the front,” said Eidahl. “The key to this race was the great start they had, and that’s one thing we have been working on. Our younger runners are begining to learn about cross country meets. We’re not there yet, but we are getting closer. Although our times were slower because of the mud, they competed well and closed the gap between all the runners.”
