Wagner Wins MBC Cross-Country Race

Kayla Wagner achieved another of her season goals at the Middle Border Conference cross country meet last Thursday at New Richmond. Wagner won the event in 15:22, or nine seconds ahead of second place finisher Morgan Place of Ellsworth.

"One of Kayla's goals was to take first place at the conference meet," said B-W Coach Jen Cimino. "It's so exciting that she was able to meet that goal. The other incredible thing about her race was that she wasn't feeling well. So to be able to put it all on the line like that shows that she is mentally tough."

For the boys team Sam Mattison led the way with a 19:26 which is his best time of the season and only his second time under 20 minutes. He was in 31st place.
