As fall comes to a close, so does the cross country season. On  Nov. 8, the OHS cross country team participated in the AIA Division I State Championships.

Overall, the girl’s team came ninth in state and the boy’s team came in fifteenth.

The top runners on both teams were Jesselyn Bries, freshman, and Sebastian Kwit, senior.

Bries, the top freshmen in the state, came in fifth for the girls, running  5,000 meters in 18 minutes and 51 seconds and Kwit came in seventeenth for the boys, running 5,000 meters in 16 minutes and 42 seconds.

“We didn’t do as well as we thought we would but we still did really well but could’ve had our times closer to each other,” Bries said.

Overall, the cross country team had a successful season with many players scoring well on both teams.
