Tigerhawks, L-S send runners to state
OTTUMWA — On a day that implied the rapidly approaching start of winter with a majority of athletes scrambling for ways to stay warm, four area cross country runners heated up and ran their best.
Colfax-Mingo’s Daktoa Hostetter, along with Lynnville-Sully runners Alexa Vander Leest, Tara Vos and Canyon Kuhlmann all put up top-10 finishes at the State Qualifying Meet at Wildwood Park in Ottumwa, keeping their seasons alive for one more day. Vos and Vander Leest led a pack of strong-finishing Hawk girls to a team berth, as well.
Hostetter finished in fourth place in the Class 1A qualifying, running a time of 15 minutes, 21 seconds. The fourth-place finish extends what has already been a banner freshman season for Hostetter, who was understandable winded but excited by her performance in frigid condtions.
