Schmidt competes at State for the third year
Merrill’s Cross Country star takes 14th out of 151 athletes
Merrill High School (MHS) Senior Elizabeth Schmidt competed in her 3rd Cross Country State Meet at the Ridges Golf Course in Wisconsin Rapids on Saturday, Oct. 30, 2021. Elizabeth placed 14th out of 151 Division 2 female athletes with a time of 19:41.
“The Ridges Golf course offers a difficult course, but since Liz has been there before, she was calm and ready to run,” Head Cross Country Coach Alyssa Swan said. “Because of COVID last year, Liz wasn’t allowed to have her teammates cheer her on, but this year, she had a great support system, made up of her teammates, to help push her to do her best!
We are very proud of Liz, and she will be greatly missed on the MHS Cross Country Team!”
