A year go as a seventh grader Leah Jessen qualified individually for the state cross country meet.
Now, as a seasoned veteran and eighth grader, the coaches daughter has taken over leadership of her team and Saturdy ran a solid 15:57 at the huge St. Olaf College Invitational and took eighth place overall.
She’s been the pace-leader for the Canby-Minneota-Lincoln-HI girls’ cross country team that finished seventh with 211 points. Competing against many much larger schools, Jessen and her teammates accomplished their main goal.
“The girls wanted to run on this course because this is where we run the state tournament,” Coach Beth Jessen said earlier this year.
The girls wanted to get a feel for the course, hoping they’ll get a chance to run as a team this year as they did last year.

Waseca won the girls’ event with 71 points with Coon Rapids second, White Bear Lake third and Centennial of the Twin Cities in fourth and Apple Valley in fifth. Woodbury was sixth with CML right behind the much larger schools.
The boys were  19th out of 23 teams with Nick Stoks leading the way in 41st place in 18:22.
Minneota’s Jack Anundson was sixth for CML and finished in 228th place in 23:18.
