MRH boys win 1st ever cross country District title; State meet is Saturday

Maplewood Richmond Heights boys cross country team won first, with the girls finishing a “strong” third in their Class 2 district championship meet on Saturday.

As a result the entire boys team will be going to the state meet. Two MRH girls qualified for State. Blue Devil Malik Stewart took second at State last year.

Coach Ryan Rzeszutko reported on the district meet on Facebook:

Our Blue Devils Boys’ XC team made MRH history today, winning our first ever Cross Country District title!  MRH won a close victory over 7-year reigning champion Whitfield.   Malik Stewart, Josh Helle, Leo Salazar, Micah Grawer, Dominic Mancuso, Josh Clark, and Jacob Cummings will all be headed to Jefferson City next Saturday to compete in the State meet.

The Girls’ XC program also made MRH proud, with a very strong 3rd place finish in Districts. Sophie Roy and Caroline Barron both qualified for State as individuals, setting new MRH Girls’ 5K Records with times of 21:53 and 21:57 respectively. #GOINGTOSTATE
