Southeast-Cherokee sophomores Tanner Craddock and Jessie Jenkins qualified for the Kansas Class 3A Cross Country State Meet on Saturday October 29.
Craddock ran an 18:09 to take 9th place at Regionals at Lake Afton Park near Wichita on Saturday; and, Jenkins ran a 21.23 to take 2nd place, just 7 seconds behind the 1st place finisher. Craddock and Jenkins are cousins, and are both from Weir, Kansas.
As a team, last year neither the Southeast Boys nor Girls had enough runners to qualify for team qualifications. This year, both teams took 5th place at Regionals.
