Cross country kudos for Marion
Marion High School’s boys cross-country team received official props Monday for its third-place finish in state competition.
Mayor David Mayfield read a proclamation praising the team’s “hard work, dedication, sportsmanship, talent, and exceptional team chemistry.”
Runners Christopher Beery, Harrison Beery, Tristen Dye, Eli Klenda, Gavin Wasmuth, Luke Wessel, and Owen White were members of the first team to place at state since 1998.
“Coach Jason Hett, team member parents, faculty, and student body at Marion High School were integral in guiding the team to success through their unwavering support,” the proclamation said.
In a less formal tone, Mayfield told the team: “Congratulations, you guys. You made us proud.”
