Last weekend boys and girls from the Belvidere Central Middle School cross country team traveled to Sterling to compete at sectionals. The girls placed 4th overall, missing state qualifying by 14 points. Taeya Houzenga and Stephanie Robles qualified individually and will advance. Taeya placed 4th overall beating the conference champion, and Stephanie placed 16th.
The boys' team placed 2nd behind Sterling, which qualifies the entire team for state. Eryk Yunk placed 1st among 84 of the area's top runners with a winning margin of 33 seconds. Other finishes include: Max Vittore - 6th place, Jake Martocci - 11th place, Alec Scott - 21st place, Jared Ellingson - 26th place, Austin Kroos - 30th place, and Austin Harnois - 38th place.
Congratulations all and good luck down state!
