The area’s cross country teams are in action this week at their respective district and regional sites to qualify for state.
The area teams attending the 2A meet at Tipton will be: Mid-Prairie and Columbus Junction, with the Golden Hawks being one of the high ranked teams in the district for a chance to go to state. The other teams at this meet will be: Camanche, Central Lee, Danville, Davis County, Louisa-Muscatine, Mediapolis, North Cedar, Northeast Goose Lake, Iowa City Regina, Tipton, West Burlington-Notre Dame and West Liberty.
Mid-Prairie head coach Mark Hostetler said both his girl’s and boy’s team have a shot at qualifying, but that the field will be tough once you get to the top four schools.
Columbus Junction and Mid-Prairie run for a chance at state on Thursday.
