FORT DODGE — All season long, the Highland boys’ cross-country team had a goal of getting to state and improving upon last season’s 11th-place finish in Fort Dodge. The Huskies did just that, finishing seventh in Class 1A at Saturday’s state meet at Lakeside Municipal Golf Course.

The seventh-ranked Huskies totaled 197 points. Senior Matt Eden finished 44th in 17:33 to lead Highland, and freshman Tucker Hall crossed the finish line one second later in 46th place. Freshman Keiffer Sexton came in 59th in 17:48, and senior Zach Popham was 73rd in 18:08. Sophomore Evan Mahler rounded out the scoring with his 86th-place finish in 18:24, and junior Josh Brase finished one second later in 87th place. Senior Luke Mahler came in 102nd in 18:50.

IMS senior Cody Miller came in 23rd in the Class 1A race. He crossed the finish line in 17:11.
