IMLAY CITY — The Imlay City girls' cross country team amassed an output of 705 points en route to a 28th last Saturday at the Division 2 state finals.

Michigan International Speedway, in Brooklyn, is where the meet was contested.

"The state meet was an awesome experience for the girls," Imlay City Co-Coach Sara O'Brien said. "Jessica Denver had a very successful race as a freshman and finished with her season personal-best," she noted.

"Sarah Evans had competed at the state meet as an individual the past two years and was very excited to travel with the rest of her team as a senior. Carlee Forsyth, McKinzie Winget, Sarah Hubbard, Sydney Kapushinski and Emerson O'Brien all were first time competitors at the event and they competed well."

O'Brien went on to say the state met was an experience her team won't soon forget.

"It is a tough course and our runners worked hard the whole race," O'Brien observed. "The girls were very excited to move their team to the next level of competition and they want to return to states next year," she noted.

"We are graduating four seniors from our girls' team but our core of five varsity runners are expected to return next year. We will see how things fall into place. I am looking forward to next year."

Lansing Catholic, which finished with 77 points, ended the day atop the team standings at meet's end. They were followed by Grand Rapids Christian (145 points), Dewitt (197), Otsego (218), Dearborn Divine Child (241), Holland Christian (293), Pontiac Notre Dame Prep (297), Chelsea (300), Allendale (303), Ada Forest Hills Eastern (335), Mason (343), Spring Lake (346), Linden (351), Ann Arbor Gabriel Richard (359), Cadillac (376), Flint Powers Catholic (386), South Haven (387), Goodrich (422), Petoskey (445), Wayland Union (459), Parma Western (464), Zeeland West (464), Frankenmuth (471), Whitehall (534), Marysville (591), Cros-Lex (622), Alma (647) and Imlay City (705).

Denver led Imlay City at the state finals. She registered a time of 19:49.7 good for 83rd. Forsyth, 175th, 21:01.8; Hubbard, 225th, 22:04.4; Evans, 227th, 22:11.7; and Kapushinski, 233rd, 22:33.7; supported her performance.
