Following Olling's Championship Run

December 16, 2011

The MHSAA Lower Peninsula Cross Country Finals were run Saturday at Michigan International Speedway. We followed Breckenridge sophomore Kirsten Olling as she won her second straight Division 4 championship.

She won in 18:02.7, giving her four MHSAA championships so far in her high school career. She also won the 3,200 and 1,600-meter races at last spring's Divsion 4 Track and Field Final.

Finally, a few "By the Numbers:"

--1,973 total runners at this fall's Finals

--Breakdown by class: 641 seniors, 591 juniors, 418 sophomores, 321 freshmen, two 8th graders (8th graders can compete on high school teams for schools with enrollments below 100)
