The Jester Cross Country team traveled to Portland, Oregon for the 2017 Nike Portland Cross Country Invite (formerly known as the Nike Pre-Nationals). The meet was held on Saturday, September 30th, at Portland Meadows. This year's meet drew over 170 middle and high schools and 4700+ athletes from eight states. It was a great day for all involved, and a great day for the sport.
The Saint Joseph High School team won 2nd place in Division 3. Juniors Gabby Gutenkauf and Serena Smith finished 10th and 21st, respectively. Sophomore Brooke Hill finished 33rd and Freshman Karisa Kopecek finished 13th. They ran their hearts out and made our SJ community proud!
