At the Freeburg regionals this past weekend, the Oilers cross country team qualified both girls and boys team sto run in next weeks Sectionals at SIUE. This is the first time since 2002 that both the boys and girls teams qualify for sectionals!

The girls team led by Haley Kerpans 9th place finish got the final qualifying spot. A great team finish running to the finish line by Carissa Gilreath , Kayla Hamilton , Kaylee Dailey and Kyara Price grabbed the last spot by one point. Great job, girls.

On the boys side, the Oilers finished 3rd in the 16 team regional. Garrett Fulkerson medaled in 4th place and Matthew Shea placed 12th and Brenden Springman right behind him in 16th.

Both teams will run for a chance at state this weekend , Good luck EAWR Cross Country!
