With conference cross country meets taking place this week, our area cross country teams are turning their focus to the postseason, and they’ve all now learned their state qualifying meet assignments.

All of our local teams will be heading to one of two places – Pella or Ottumwa.

Pella is playing host to both a class 3-A and 2-A state qualifier. In 3-A, the hosts will be joined by Knoxville and 11 other schools. In 2-A, Pella Christian, PCM and Pleasantville will be part of a 15-team field.

Our local 1-A schools, Melcher-Dallas and Twin Cedars, head to Ottumwa as part of meet hosted by Pekin that features a total of 27 schools.

All state qualifying cross country meets will be held next Thursday, October 19th.
