Gracie White is 68th
at IHSAA Semistate
Switzerland County Lady Pacer cross country runner Gracie White capped an outstanding freshman season last Saturday by participating in the IHSAA Cross Country Semistate, held at Brown County, Indiana.
The day was a rainy, soggy, wet mess, forcing runner to make their way through standing water and extremely muddy conditions.
In spite of all of the hindrances, White ran to a 68th place finish overall, running a time of 21:15.7.
That placing came close to qualifying her to advance to the state finals, but she just missed out, as the top 15 runners who are not on advancing teams move on as individuals. She was the lone Switzerland County participant in the Semistate, having advanced out of the Regional as an individual.
