The KSHSAA State Cross Country Championships were dominated by the Olathe North Boys and Girls teams! 7 All state individual runners, 2 Team Trophies, and 1 State Championship!!!!!

The girls started the day off in tremendous fashion!  Zoey Schillinger, Claire Fuhlhage, and Sarah Whitaker ran to top 10 finishes with their 7th, 8th, and 10th place finishes respectfully.  They were followed closely by Julia Sketers (29th), Hannah Rodina (48th), Kynlee Dillon (55th), and Mackenzie Lane (74th).  As a group this was good for Third Place as a Team!!! And only 8 points behind the 1st place team.  This group of ladies brought home the 1st state cross country girls trophy in school history!!!

The girls got the day going and the boys put the exclamation point of it!  4 of the boys placed in the top 20.  All 7 boys ran under 17:00.  Your Olathe North boys cross country team is the 2018 State Champions!!!!  It was a dominating performance for the boys team; scoring 45 team points which was 12 points ahead of 2nd place.  Brian Beach and Jackson Caldwell led the way with their 2nd and 3rd overall individual finishes.  Cade Heikes (14th), Jordan Yonce (19th), Bobby Johnson (22nd), Joey Guzman (36th), and Jack Spanel (39th) all were right on their heels.  It was an awesome day!!!
