Hannah Terkildsen qualifies for this year’s State Cross Country meet

Blackhawks team displays best performance this season

On Wednesday, Oct. 16, the SCW Cross Country team traveled to Gettysburg for their region meet to compete for a chance to run at the State Cross Country meet at the end of the month. This year, freshman Hannah Terkildsen placed eighth out of 36 runners, which qualified her for the state meet. The top 20 placers earn a trip to the state meet. 

Although every male runner on the team ran their personal best time, none of them qualified to advance to the state meet this year. The boys running for SCW at the region meet were Jeffrey Boschee placing 30th, Noah Terkildsen who placed 43rd, Braxton Gentles who came in at 51st and Andrew Lindgren who finished in 54th place. There were 66 runners for the boys’ race. 

Hannah Terkildsen will run on Saturday, Oct. 26 in Huron at the State Cross Country meet. The race starts at 2:30 p.m.
