The Lions were lead by senior Roy Wedge, who finished second with a time of 15:58.71.

LHS finished eighth at this meet last season.

“We are preforming better than last year,” Lions coach Brian Anderson said, “and that was really exciting.”

The Lions’ other runners were Nicolas Shump (17:21.28), Simon Fangman (17:56.53), Kyler Thomann 18:00.83) and Cody Jones (19:02.58).

The LHS girls finished in 17th place.

Anderson said many of the girls improved their times.

Michala Ruder led the Lions, finishing 43rd in a time of 16:57.93.

The other LHS girls runners were Lucy Daldorph (17:13.84), Shelby Clark (17:22.65), Adree Shield (18:06.82), Jordan Herd (19:35.51) and Regan Keller (19:40.99).

terrific journalism, way to completely omit the free state results

I agree just_me. It seems like because Wedge did not win that LJW decided not to even talk about it. Check out the KC Star and how much better they covered this major sporting event. What is the deal LJW? Are we sore losers?

Congrats to the LHS boys! This is a huge meet! Well done. To the JW Staff- What the heck? This is a HUGE meet. Teams from several different states. It is quite an event. The competition is amazing. You missed a chance to cover one of the most competitive events in high school sports in Kansas. Truly. I was unable to attend and had to call a Free State parent to find out if Free State even ran in this meet. I know it's the coaches responsibility to call in their results, but a meet of this magnitude should have a reporter out there covering it. Anyway, congrats to the Free State kids too! They also had a good day.
