Thanks to Coach Josh Sypert for providing the following information on the state cross country meet:
The Eustace Cross Country teams competed at the State Championships in Round Rock, TX on November 7, 2015. The race took place in some historic conditions, 40 degree temperature and several inches of rain left the course slippery and muddy. This is what Cross Country is all about, rain or shine, we still race.
The Boys Team was able to capture a podium spot for the 4th year in a row. They placed 3rd as a team in the class 3A division. They were lead by Junior Ericsen Gudjohnsen who earned All-State honors with his 10th place finish and time of 17:00.
