Gothenburg Cross Country battled the elements as they fought to continue their season at the District Meet in Ogallala on Thursday, Oct. 16. As runners crossed the finish line, gasping for the thin cold air, it was obvious that the conditions were less than ideal for the exhausted athletes. This did not stop both teams from giving it their all however, as the Lady Swedes gave some solid performances and the boys team secured themselves a third place finish as a team to punch their ticket to the State Meet.
