TROY — Senior Gage Beireis qualified for the Division I state cross country championship by placing 15th at the Troy regional Saturday with a time of 16:27.37.
After an all-night soaking rain the course on the river levee was, amazingly, still useable. The weather conditions Saturday at 3 p.m. when the race began was only in the mid-forties with a steady wind that made it feel even colder.
Beireis overcame the rather difficult conditions to earn a berth to state.
