On Saturday, the Ram Girls' Cross-Country Team raced to a historic runner-up finish in the Class 4A race at the state cross-country meet in Ft. Dodge, IA. Their 2nd place finish matches the program's best finish since 1980 and caps an incredible season where the rams won five team titles, including conference and district crowns. The Rams were led by Mia Rampton's stellar 11th place finish. By placing in the top-15 individually, Mia earned a place on the all-state team. Freshman Lillian Schmidt turned in an inspired performance as she cracked the top-20, finishing 18th overall. Junior Ashley Donovan raced to a fantastic 21st place finish and senior star Mackenzie Gaherty crossed the line in 37th. Senior Ava Frye surged to a 55th place finish to seal the 2nd place finish for the Rams. Freshman Izzy Gorton (89th) and Junior Olivia Kruse (109th) also raced well, finishing ahead of many schools' scoring racers.
