Waukon girls cross country team finishes seventh at unique Waverly-SR meet

The Waukon girls cross country team competed in the uniquely-scored Dick Pollitt Go-Hawk Classic hosted by Waverly-Shell Rock Tuesday, September 5, finishing seventh in the overall 15-team field. The meet is run in “grade” format, where seniors and juniors compete in one race and sophomores and freshmen in another, and team scores are then kept for each grade level as well as an overall team tally.

Meet guidelines for the overall team scoring take the top five individual finishes for a team from each grade race, but no more than two runners from each grade level can be used by a team to calculate its final overall team score. The Indians used at least one scorer from each of the four different grade races to calculate their team score of 55 points that placed them seventh in the final 15 scoring team overall standings.
