The 2009 cross country season finished up on Saturday for all but one of Tonganoxie High’s runners at a regional.

Neither the Chieftains’ boys or girls team finished in the top three — which would have qualified them for the state meet — but senior Andie Jeannin was the fifth and final runner from a non-qualifying team to earn a trip to the Class 4A state championship in Wamego.

Jeannin placed 16th in the girls 4K at Wyandotte County Park with a time of 16:42.

Alex Hauk finished 30th in the race, completing the course in 17:42.

Dalton Harrington led the way for Tonganoxie’s boys. His time of 18:31 in the 5K was good enough for 29th.

Tonganoxie’s girls finished sixth in the team standings and the THS boys were eighth.

I don't understand why people suddenly rush behind the sports celebs. they are good but not what they show. i am reading a lot of news such as recent Acai berry stories how they help to athletes. can anyone tell me if Acai berry (such as http://www.acai.org) really help people.
