Four runners from Liberal High School competed in the State Championship race Saturday at Rim Rock Farms cross country course in Lawrence.  The weather was drastically different than the last month when the Redskins competed at Rim Rock, where some of the races were cancelled due to the high temperatures.  The temperature for the morning races were in the low 30s.

In the 5A boys race, Javier Carrillo led the way for the Redskins running a lifetime personal best of 16:58. Carrillo’s time was good enough to place him 42nd in the state. Xavier Perez was right on Carrillo’s heels as he clocked a time of 16:59, breaking the 17-minute barrier for the second straight race. Perez finished 44th in the race.

Antonio Borunda was the 53rd runner to cross the line doing so in 17:11. The top three teams for the boys in 5A were St. Thomas Aquinas in first with 61 points, Mill Valley in second with 72 points, and Andover in third with 108 points.

Sophomore Katie Horyna ran her best time this season, running the 5K course in 19:51.  That time was the 21st fastest of the day.

The top three teams for 5A girls were St. James Academy with 40 points, Mill Valley with 45 points, and St. Thomas Aquinas with 85 points.  

The state meet concluded the season for most of the Redskins, however a few will compete Nov. 18 in Westchester, Ohio, in the Youth National Championships.
