Ketchikan is hosting the Region V cross country meet this Saturday, Sept. 23 at Ward Lake. The 4A boys will compete at 11:45 a.m. and the small school boys (1A, 2A, 3A) will race at 11 a.m.
On the girls side, 4A will race at 1:15 p.m. and the small school girls (1A, 2A, 3A) will compete at 12:30 p.m. The boys finished 3rd and the girls placed 4th last weekend in their final race before regionals. Senior Sydney Nichols is hoping to improve her time this weekend.
“I’m nervous for this weekend beacuse I haven’t done all that great this season,” said Nichols. “I am really trying to get at 24:30 this race. It’s my last race so I want to give it my all. I am also excited to see who will be in the top 10 to go to state.”
