RBHS cross country runs well at conference meet

ALL CONFERENCE–The cross country conference meet was held at Salem last Saturday. Athletes who earned medals by finishing top 10 of the Illinois Division include Anna Wolter seventh, Luke Miller seventh and Joseph Hanger tenth.

Saturday, the Musketeers took a very early bus to travel to Salem for their Cahokia Conference meet. The site at Bryan Memorial park was filled with rolling hills and brilliant colored trees and the weather was chilly, but otherwise perfect for a race. We had a good feeling for the day right from the start.

For the girls, we saw Anna Wolter run a season best and finish #7 in our conference to receive a medal and earn the title of “All Conference” runner.

The boys were also a little short for a team score. But they made up for that in their very successful individual accomplishments.
