ROCKFORD (WREX) – Some middle school athletes hope to bring home a state title after this weekend.
The Montessori Mustangs and Eisenhower Eagles are headed to state on Saturday. The boys and girls cross country teams were celebrated on Friday at a school assembly as they prepare to represent Rockford. Eisenhower Coach Scott Burley says he’s excited to see them have this opportunity.
“I hope that they just have the best race that they’v ever had,” said Burley. “Every race they’ve been racing, probably the last three races, they progressively have gotten faster and progressively had better races.”
The state competition is at Maxwell Park in Normal, Ill.
