Edmonson County High School Senior Austin Sasse will be competing the State Cross Country Meet this Saturday, November 7th at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. The meet will be a 5K race, which is 3.2 miles.
Austin has participated in competitive running since he was a 5th grader. Unfortunately, this is the first time in his high school career that the entire team did not qualify for the meet. Individuals that are not on qualifying teams can still qualify, as long as they finish in the top 5 in the region. Austin finished 2nd overall.
"It'll be the first time he's run alone," said Edmonson County Elementary Cross Country Coach Kathy Sasse. "It's a tough course and he just wants to make his team, his county, and coach Brad (Meredith) proud. Coach Brad has been good to him," she said.
Good luck to Austin on Saturday, and thank you for representing Edmonson County well.
