Erie senior Breanna Ross kicks up the speed during the KSHSAA Class 2A Cross Country State Championships in Wamego on Saturday, Oct. 29.

WAMEGO — The Wamego Country Club played host to the 4A-2A-1A KSHSAA Cross Country State Championships on Saturday. Nine athletes from Chanute and Erie made the trip for the five kilometer race, with just two runners landing in the top-20 to earn a medal and all-state honors.

“This course is brutal with its constant hills and curves,” Erie head coach Kyle Carpenter said of the Wamego track. “Walking the course ahead of time, I was hard-pressed to find any length of it that was straight or flat. You've got to be pretty tough to do well at Wamego. On top of the difficulty of the course, you're also racing against the best runners in cross country, from all across the state.”
