Freshman Marie Yoder earned all-state honors at the Iowa High School Cross Country

time of 19:41. The top fifteen in each class are all-state. Yoder’s time is a new personal
best. Her previous best was 20:22.
“Marie ran beyond expectations today. The cold windy day and the course being soft
from rain the night before did not slow Marie one bit. Today was a great day for
Hillcrest cross country. This is the fastest any Lady Raven at Hillcrest has ever run a 5k cross
country course. Congratulations Marie!”
