Points were tough to come by for Meridian, as the Lady Mustangs and Mustangs both finished in ninth place in their respective team races each scoring 24 points.
Giltner won the girls team championship in the 11-team invite racking up 94 points, while Hampton was second with 74 points.

Goals are always nice to attain.
That was the case for Fairbury senior Shelby Pollman, as after being named Class C-1 All-State Honorable Mention last year, Pollman achieved her ultimate goal of being selected to the Class C-1 All-State Basketball first team by the Lincoln Journal Star.
The 6’0” point guard led the Lady Jeffs in scoring and rebounding this past season averaging 17.1 points per game, and 7.3 rebounds per game.
Receiving these post-season honors were special for Pollman.
“This honor of being selected All-State first team is pretty special. Last year I was chosen Honorable Mention and this year I set a goal for myself to be named first team all-state. Being a senior this honor means a lot,” Pollman said.
Throughout all of her years of playing basketball in high school being named All-State in basketball was a goal of Pollman’s.
