Jake Ajax qualifies for State Cross Country Tournament
Nov. 3 Update
On a cloudy, calm, mid-30 degree day, Jake completed an individual time of 16:58 on the 5,000 meter course (that's a 5-minute, 10-second mile), placing him 111 out of 178 runners. Congratulations!
Spring Lake Park High School junior Jake Ajax qualified for the Nov. 3 State Cross Country Tournament after posting a time of 16:33 in the Oct. 25 Section 5AA meet.
The state meet will be held Saturday, Nov. 3, beginning at 1:00 pm, at Saint Olaf College. There is no admission charge for this meet.
Thinking about going to support Jake? Spectator parking is available at four remote parking lots at the southeast end of St. Olaf campus. Large red signs will direct spectators to these lots. Shuttle service to and from campus will be provided from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on race day. The pickup and drop off points will be posted with large red “Bus Stop” signs. Please note: Spectator parking is not allowed in any of the Skoglund Athletic Center parking lots.
The award ceremony will be conducted approximately 30 minutes after the completion of the last race.
