  • Mexico High School cross country team had a successful match Thursday at Hannibal. Leading off the race was the leadership of girls team captain Maddie Prince with a 13th place overall finish and a medal on what was a hilly course.
    "All our girls looked strong on this course, DXC kids passed other teams on all the big hills, and maintained that lead with endurance as they worked their way up in the race. Although we have not been training on lots of hills, we have been training lots of miles this year, which really showed as other teams started looking fatigued and DXC just kept bringing it," stated MHS coach John Wilbers.
    This was especially true on the boys side where the varsity emerged victorious to take the first place team award and an overwhelming 11 individual medals across the varsity and junior varsity teams. The JV race was led most of the three miles by sophomore Spencer Freeman, with teammates Drew Slay and Logan Anselmi close behind.
    "I was just really impressed with how our team looked, and excited to see the commanding performance we had," said Wilbers.
