The WCA Cross Country teams were at Little Crow Golf Course in New London last Thursday afternoon for the Section 6A meet with a shot of making the State meet on the line. The WCA boys placed fourth of the 26 teams and the girls placed 14th, meaning that neither team made the state tournament, but both the boys and girls had one of their runners qualify individually.

Nelson and VanKempen each qualified by finishing ninth of the 160 runners at the section 6A meet.VanKempen will race on Saturday at 10 a.m. and Nelson will race at 11 a.m. on the campus of St. Olaf College. They will get a day of practice on Friday afternoon followed by a session of carbohydrate loading on Friday evening.
