The road to state
It was a long but successful day for Ennis’ long-distance runners at the Belgrade XC Meet in Bozeman on Sep. 2. Freshman boys started the day at 10 a.m., with competitors pounding the pavement throughout the day, ending with middle school girls at 2:15 p.m.
Head Coach Melinda Legg said the entire team of runners has shown improvement, and all her high school runners have now qualified for the state meet in Missoula set for Oct. 23.
