Elsberry Indians Cross Country team head to State Competition

Although all the girls, who ran, from the Elsberry Indians Cross Country team placed, only four will see State Competition this year. Maggie Spratt, Naomi Gladney, Bailey Zimmerman and Anne Marie Bufford.

It has been quite the season for the Elsberry Indian Cross Country Team as once again Head Coach Ezra Tillotson will see his team compete for State.

“What a day it was,” said Tillotson. “Although it was cold, it wasn’t that bad. The girls were in their Under Armor and once you run about a mile, you don’t even notice and actually you need it to help suck off heat.”

According to Tillotson, when his team met at Bowling Green for Districts the only thing that seemed to be on their mind was giving 110 percent and that’s just what they seemed to do.

“When the gun went off I was a little bit concerned about Cairo, who hadn’t shown up all season with a full team now had a team filled with long legged runners,” said Tillotson.
