2018 SEASON

WHS VARSITY CROSS COUNTRY
STATE 4A MEET @ Wamego
Saturday, October 27, 2018

Chase Pflazgraf 46th out of 102 @ State 4A!

Chase Pfalzgraf and Mackenzie Heacock, qualified last weekend in Chanute for today's (Saturday) State 4A Cross Country Meet in Wamego! A big sendoff took place on Wednesday for Chase and Mackenzie (2 days early due to PT Conferences/No School) out at WHS. Unfortunate news was received today prior to the conclusion of the State Meet that Jr. Mackenzie Heacock had rolled her ankle Friday evening and would not be able to compete on Saturday. Not the outcome you want at a State event for sure. Mackenzie has next year to try again, that fact keeps a smile on several faces I'm sure. (mine as well!) 

In the Boys 4A, 5K race just before lunch, Sr. Chase Pfalzgraf finished 46th out of a field of 102 runners, with a time of 18:33.5 / Finishing first was Buhler Freshman, Tanner Lindahl, with a time of 16:18.8. Chase, who had always played football in the fall, had major shoulder issues so switched to Cross Country half-way or so through his Crusader Career. Today's 5K race at Wamego was only Chase's 6th or 7th career 5K run - to finish 46th out of 102 shows the result of Chase's determination and hardwork to make up for lost time in this grueling event. Congratulations Chase on your hard work, you have represented your community and your school very well - you've shown younger student-athletes it's never too late to excel. CONGRATULATIONS!

Congratulations to Mackenzie and Chase both - qualifying for the State 4A Cross Country Meet is no easy task - both did, both deserve LOUD APPLAUSE!! :)
