The Hastings boys and girls cross country team will be represented by one person at the state cross country meet next weekend. Mike Rough, an HHS senior, qualified for the state meet by earning a top-10 finish at Thursday's section meet in Owatonna.
On the girls side, Bri Strandberg, an HHS freshman, placed 11th. Only the top 10 runners advance. Kelly Pechous, an HHS senior, was 12th.
As a team, the Hastings girls took sixth.
Rough will run Nov. 7 at St. Olaf College in Northfield.
