Qualifying for the fourth time in four years, an accomplishment few will attain in their prep careers, Madeline Mischak competed in the IHSAA Semi State Meet on Saturday. Seeking an individual trip to the Cross Country State Finals, Mischak was on track to battle the course, other runners, and the weather throughout the race.
Mischak was confident in her start and in her race, as she ran amongst her fellow elite runners. She was able to run throughout the quick course and through the cold, wind and rain to to sprint down the final stretch to cross the line with 21:09 on the clock. Mischak finished in 123rd place.
The top six teams and top 10 individuals from non advancing teams qualify for the State Finals on November 2 in Terre Haute. Mischak unfortunately did not finish in that top 10 and did not qualify for the State Meet.

Congratulations on a great season Maddie and Girls Cross Country!
