Benning places fifth at state meet
Make no mistake about it – Hastings High School senior Zack Benning went to the state cross country meet on Saturday to win it.
He was either going to do just that, or he was going to collapse trying.
Benning went out with the top two runners at a blistering pace and hung with them for more than two of the race’s 3.1 miles, but in the end, they pulled away and Benning fell back. He ended up placing fifth.
