A year removed from an appearance at the state cross country meet, Myra Baker and Ramsie Tschappler represented Linn well at Saturday’s Class 2 meet and showed a lot of improvement.
They ran with 166 other runners and both finished strong. “The Gans Creek course is a tough one to start because a runner naturally wants to move over to the inside line, but the course is very wide, and moving that much can be time-consuming,” said Coach Robyn Baker. “So, I encouraged our runners to take out strong and straight and gradually move over, which they were able to do and both had good starts.”
Myra Baker ended her senior season on the state course with a 40th-place time of 21:41. “It was fun to watch her,” said Coach Baker. “She didn’t finish on the All-State podium but she improved her time from last year’s state meet, and she went out and ran her race and competed well.”
Ramsie Tschappler was also competing for the second time at the state meet and turned in a time of 22:17 for 67th place.
“She learned a little last year and improved her race,” said Baker. “She is such a strong runner and has great determination to succeed. I am excited to have her back next year and feel confident she will be back on the state course stronger and even better.”
