Kasey Richards competed at the Class 2 State Cross Country meet last Friday, Nov. 6, 2020, where she placed fifth out of the 161 runners who completed the race, with a time of 20:27.40. The meet was held at the Gans Creek Cross Country course in Columbia, Mo., which will be the site of the SEC Cross Country championships next year. Kasey has worked very hard this season and it really paid off. She started the race in fifth place and held it throughout the race. It will be exciting to see what she does on the course next year.
