For the first time in Marengo history, the cross country boys qualified their seven-man squad for the State Meet in Peoria, Illinois. In the regionals they created an upset, earning team runner-up to Rockford Christian who is ranked fifth in the state. The following weekend they were running the hills of Oregon, IL where the team was able to squeeze in for the final ticket to Peoria. The day brought 10-15 mph winds creating wind chills in the twenties. The state-bound team is composed of Alex Leonard, Luke Chaffin, Zach Secor, Aaron Moehrlin, Jadon Kozin, CJ Arevalo, and Brant Lesher. With two Seniors, one Junior and four Freshman the team has great potential for future success. First-year coaches, Kenneth Johnson (Head Coach) and Julie Urbanek (Assistant Coach) coached boys and girls. Hannah Secor, a senior also had a remarkable day at sectionals just missing state by two places and positioning herself 18th out of 161 runners.
