Nash 7th grader Andrea Pace placed 38th out of 260 runners Saturday at the IESA STATE XC Finals at Maxwell Park in Normal. Andrea's time of 12:44 was not her best time of the year, but it was a great time considering the 20-25 mile an hour winds that swirled the 2 mile course.
Andrea was disappointed in not making the top 25 (All State status) but felt she learned a lot about what she has to do to improve for her 8th grade year. From a coaching standpoint, I was very proud of how Andrea has continued to improve throughout the season and her effort Saturday was definitely no disappointment. She also is the first girl we've had in XC advance to state. Congratulations Andrea!
