Fourth place out of 238 runners. That’s an impressive finish for anyone — let alone a freshman but that’s exactly what Cadillac’s Kendall Schopieray did on Saturday. She went into the state finals ranked 10th but her time of 18:36 was good enough to move her up six spots. Schopieray earned all-state honors with the 4th place finish.
The girls’ team as a whole finished 14th overall. Susie Huckle took 96th in 20:19, Gabi Metzger came in 117th in 20:42, Heather Eller 148th in 21:08, Gwen Phillips 160th in 21:14, Chloie Musta 174th in 21:34, and Ellah Santangelo finished 185th in 21:49.
All seven runners will return next year — congratulations on a successful cross country season!
