Whitko, Roush advance to state

October 24, 2011

FORT WAYNE — Whitko’s boys cross country team seemed a little out of place at the awards ceremony Saturday at New Haven’s semi-state meet.
Barefooted and surrounded by big-town schools like Mishawaka, Marion, South Bend St. Joseph, Carroll, Warsaw and Snider, the Wildcats took the podium for their first ever sixth-place finish, good enough for a trip to the state meet.
Taking the trip to Terre Haute with them will be Columbia City’s Samantha Roush, who placed second individually.
