On Saturday, October 31st, the weather was frightful, but the outcome
for Shelby Siltman and the Olympia Girls Cross Country was delightful.
The Olympia junior topped the highly competitive sectional race at
Elmwood in the rain. Shelby's finish coupled with personal bests by the
rest of the team allowed the youthful Spartan runners to finish 5th and
set up a team appearance at the State Cross Country Meet on Saturday,
November 7 at Detweiler Park. Those individuals qualifying include Mary
Grace Cleinmark, Renee Hallstein, Morgan Aldridge, Payton Wille, Grace
Litwiller, and Hannah Lawless. Five freshmen, one sophomore, and
junior, Shelby Siltman propelled the Spartans into the fifth place
spot. CONGRATULATIONS to the girls team and coaches Mike Neisler and
David Stine! Way to go SPARTANS!
