November 14, 2014

Alyssa Kavajecz, a junior and Blake Reijo, a senior at South Shore High School laced up their running shoes and hit the trail on November 1st for the WIAA State Championships. The Middle School and High School students gathered to give the pair a big farewell and good-luck pep rally before they departed school with Coach Marla Lahti and Assistant Coach Beth Hoagland in the early morning hours for the long trip to Wisconsin Rapids. Kavajecz competed against 150 other Division 3 runners in the Women’s 5k, placing 116th with a time of 22:48.8.  In the Men’s 5k, Reijo placed 106th, also out of 150, with a time of 18:54.1.  Coach Lahti expressed her pride in the athletes, “it is an amazing achievement to be able to compete at State Cross Country.  Blake and Alyssa competed well with the top athletes in our state and we are extremely proud of them!”
