The Joliet Boys and CJ Roadrunners Girls Cross Country teams had an amazing showing at the State meet in Helena over the weekend.  All of the participants worked hard and finished strong. 
Our boys team placed 15th out of 22 teams. 
Individually, Jakob May placed 15th overall in Class B Boys with a time of 17:59.  It was an amazing fight for the finish.  All of his hard work and dedication throughout the season really paid off. In other performances Parker Smith finished his last high school race placing 78th with a time of 20:19; Dawson Bancroft also finished his last high school race placing 104th with a time of 21:00. 
Brigham Smith finished with a new PR for the season and 118th with a time of 21:29 and Nathan Ovitt our 5th runner placing 148th with a time of 23:15. 
Raiden Ovitt placed 152 with a time of 23:59; Riley Simons also finished with a new PR for the season and an amazing fight at the end for his spot.  He placed 159th with a time of 24:26. 
The CJ Roadrunners placed 16th out of 19 teams. 
Jalyn Songstad was the first runner through for the CJ Roadrunners with a place of 79 and a time of 25:17; Megan Deines placed 84th with a time of 25:47; Keelie O'Reilly placed 101st with a time of 26:37 and Allison Onoszko placed 105th with a time of 26:48.

Emily Deines placed 124th with a time of 28:05.  Liz Lorash placed 139th with a time of 29:51. 
It was a great day to end the season on. 
Good luck to the team members who are moving on, thank you for everything that you have contributed to this team over the past 1-7 years, you are all going to be greatly missed. 
Thank you also to Colton Bauwens for all of your hard work and dedication as our manager throughout the season.  I do not know what we are going to do without you next year.  Work hard Seniors, and finish your high school studies with as much strength and fortitude as you did finishing your Cross Country season.  Blessings to you as you start on your next journey in life, wherever that may take you.
