The Lake Mills Cross Country teams competed in Forest City on Monday, October 10, 2022. Justin Rygh won the boys race with a time of 16:44.91. Knute Rogne came in at 9th with a time of 17:44.84. Both boys medaled and help lead the Bulldogs to a 3rd place finish out of 9 teams. The top 5 boys for Lake Mills all finished under 20 minutes, which is a goal we had at the beginning of the season. They competed well and again fell to two 2A schools, Garner and Forest City. The boys are running really well and competing as a team, and pushing themselves to help the team. Very proud of their team focused approach and how it has motivated them to run faster and not give up.
The Lake Mills Girls Cross Country team had two girls reach a new PR on a course that had many hills. The team has been dealing with some injuries and illness, so I am hoping they can get healthy before we enter our Conference meet and Regionals. They are working so hard and I am so proud of their effort and improvement.
