2022 MSHSAA Class 5 Girls State Championship photo article

Running by the pond: Blue Springs' Abigail Brackenbury runs near the pond, by the 1K turn at the Class 5 MSHSAA Cross Country Championships. 

Let's look back at some of the top photos from the MSHSAA Class 5 girls meet, which was held on Friday, Nov. 4 at the Gans Creek Cross Country Course in Columbia.

ALMOST MATCHING: North Kansas City runner Gianna Ezekwe (1783) had a bright uniform and right behind her is Blue Spring South's Ella Rew, who had shoes that matched Ezekwe's jersey. 

Pack mentality: Parkway West teammates, from left, Alexandra Etchason, Nicole Paquette and Amy Rein run together. 

KC Four: Four Kansas City-area runners are near each other as they looped around the starting line for lap two at the state meet. That group featured Lee's Summit West's Ella Cronhardt (1747), Liberty's Britta Foust (1761), Liberty's Ella Brown (1758) and Blue Springs South's Caitlin Grover (1648).
