The Cook County/Two Harbors cross country running team, North Shore Storm, followed up on their great showing at the Section 7A championship meet with a trip to the State Meet at St. Olaf College in Northfield on Saturday, November 3. Once again the Storm runners faced stiff competition and represented the North Shore well, with the boys’ team finishing 9th and the girls 16th.

Out of 175 runners at St. Olaf, the Storm girls finished strong with Autumn Smith finishing 40th with a time of 20.25.8, followed closely by Cedar Gordon, 44th at 20.38.4. Lamar Gordon was less than a second back, coming in 67th at 21.23.7. They were followed by Claire LaVigne in 69th with a time of 21.24.7, Louise Ramberg, 71st with 21.26.6; Kate Walsberg, 77th, at 21.36.8 and Malin Anderson, 90th with a time of 22.07.2.

The boys’ field included 176 runners. Finishing first for the Storm was Isaac Swanson, in 15th at 16.35.8. He was closely followed by Noah Smith in 23rd, 16.53.9 and Brenden Seipke, 28th at 16.57.9. The rest of the 9th place Storm were Will Surbaugh, 48th, 17.21.5; JC Holman, 101, 18.47.9; Tate Crawford, 104th, 19.02.5; and Kevin Viren, 106th, 19.05.0.
