The Villa Grove High School boys’ and girls’ cross-country teams traveled to Chrisman on Saturday, September 4 for the annual Chrisman Cow Chip Classic. The meet is uniquely formatted so that coaches seed their teams from 1-7 and the athletes compete in flights based on those seeds. Here are Villa Grove’s results.
Freshman Kurt Zimmerman was the top finisher for Villa Grove, placing tenth in flight two. Chase White ran 12th in flight three, Caleb Wiessing was 20th in the fourth flight, Blake Davis ran 19th in flight six and Austin Zoch was 20th in flight seven.
