Freshman Phoe-nom

The last time a freshman made the state meet for the Marshalltown girls cross country team, Phoebe Hermanson was 3 years old.

Now 11 years later, Hermanson is the first Bobcat freshman to make the trip to Fort Dodge for the Iowa High School State Cross Country Championships since Lydia Martin in 2007 and the first MHS girl to run at Lakeside Municipal Golf Course since Rachel Blagg in 2014.

In the week since earning her spot at state by placing ninth in the state qualifying meet at the Marshalltown Community College Cross Country Course last Thursday, Hermanson said there’s been an outpouring of encouragement from the community.

She collapsed at the finish line last week. Now she’s a three

Four teams brought home state titles, and five individual runners crowned themselves the fastest in Idaho. But two three-peat state champions stole the show.

A bout of heat stroke cost Mountain View’s Lexy Halladay a district title last week as she collapsed three times in the final 30 meters before getting up and crawling across the finish line.

No one covers what is happening in our community better than we do. And with a digital subscription, you’ll never miss a local story.

Halladay put that nightmare out of her mind Saturday and cruised to her third straight 5A girls state title, completing the 5-kilometer course in 17 minutes, 8.8 seconds, 14.1 seconds ahead of Eagle’s Ashley LaJocies.
