Nick Wakefield competed at the state cross country meet in Fort Dodge on Saturday, Oct. 28. With a time of 17:50.9, Wakefield finished 58th out of 138 runners.


“Nick ran one of his best times at the state meet under cold, windy and hilly conditions,” said coach Brad Dedic. “It was another gritty performance and he seems to be enjoying the challenges of running competitive long distance.


“While he was able to enjoy this very admirable accomplishment, we had many broken hearts at the end of the district meet this year. I feel like this team will make it its mission to come back even stronger next year.”
