Sabre girls Ingrid Buiceag-Arama, Hannah Spoden and Sabre boys Nicholas Buiceag-Arama, Zachary Harren and Mitiku Nies all qualified for the State Cross Country meet on Saturday, November 3rd at St. Olaf College.

Sophomore Ingrid Buiceag-Arama will be making her 4th appearance at the state meet. Ingrid said, “I am looking forward to competing against the best in the state and going for a personal record.” At last year’s state meet, she placed 28th with a time of 19:01 as a freshman.

“Last year was fun but I still feel like I have work to do, and I want to do my best at the state meet.” With this being Ingrid only being a sophomore and having run at the state course three times prior she feels confident: “The past three years have helped me master the course and have also helped me to relax and chill a little bit on race day.”

Lastly she told me:

I’m very proud of my teammates, and I’m ready for one last hoorah with brother.”
