Wasatch Academy had three State qualifiers in the girls’ division. Ashley Lagat was our top finisher, taking 7th in 2A (19:44). This was a 2+ minute improvement over her time last year and it earned her All-State recognition.
Sheilah Cheruiyot finished 15th at 21:20. This was a disappointment as she and Ashley have been neck and neck this season. Sheilah has been nursing a tendinitis issue in her lower leg since late September and she was in quite a bit of pain at State so her performance suffered.
Purity Kattam finished 24th, in the top half in the field of 51 runners. Her time was also an improvement over last year.
Brayden Butler was the only boy to qualify from Wasatch Academy and he placed 44th finishing at 19:40.
