The Class 1 boys race was the 10th and final of the 2022 MSHSAA State Cross Country Championships, the 4th edition at gorgeous Gans Creek Cross Country Course. After a blustery day 1, the 2nd day of the meet on Saturday started with cold and wet conditions after some Friday night showers. A light shower fell during the first two races of the day, but eventually the rain quite, the clouds spread, and the sun shone brightly. That made for good conditions for the final two races of the meet, the Class 1 boys and girls 5,000-meter jaunts.
Sunshine and Blue Skies
The Class 1 Boys race was the 10th and final of the 2022 MSHSAA State Cross Country Championships and the sixth on Day #2. Rainy, cloudy, cold conditions passed and sunshine and blue skies reigned on Saturday afternoon, as visible at the start of the Class 1 Boys race.
The Hermitage Hornets were racing for another state title, and at 1,000-meters, things looked good. Justin Horn (left #329) was in 2nd, while Bennet Mantooth (#330) was 4th, and Justin Yates (#336) as the Hermitage totaled just 44 points.
