With running futures this bright, members of the Monument Valley High School girl’s cross country team should be wearing shades.
The girl’s team placed fifth in the state competition held in Salt Lake City Oct. 18. Megan Sloan placed 42nd with a time of 27:26.8, Megan Adakai placed 41st with a time of 27:15.3, Mika John placed 24th with a time of 24:13.5, and Mckayla Holiday broke into the top ten with a seventh-place finish and a time of 22:18.2. There were 53 runners competing for the state championship.
“I was nervous, but then I enjoyed the view and it was cool and it calmed me down,” said Holiday. “I was happy that my team was with me.”
Michael John was the only boy from MVHS to qualify for the state competition. He beat his personal best time by more than a minute and placed 38th with a time of 20:15.4. John moved up 11 places from his finish last year.
“The kids did an amazing job,” said coach Rob LeCheminant. “I’m super proud of their efforts. They all got their personal best runs, they all improved, and I could not be happier.”
