As the Elsberry Indians Cross Country team walked out the doors of Elsberry High School on Friday, Nov. 2 and through the tunnel of students applauding their fellow athletes, no one including Head Coach Ezra Tillotson, knew what would take place the next day at State, where they would find themselves with a fourth place victory.

“We made a good run,” said Tillotson. “They did everything right and it was tough getting in. I figure we were in the top eight in times [compared to districts].”
