Geyer 15th at State Cross Country

Levi Geyer

Senior Levi Geyer earned all-state honors at the state cross country championships near Fort Dodge Saturday.  Geyer ran the 5k course in 16:45.7 seconds and placed fifteenth in the 1A race.  The top fifteen finishers earn all-state honors.  Levi qualified for the state meet by placing eighth in the Solon state qualifier meet in 17:17.  That was his personal best up to that point.  Saturday Levi was the fourth finisher from the Solon qualifier meet.

“Levi ran a tremendous race to end his high school cross country career.  He ran his first two miles of the race in 5:20 and 5:22 then his final 1.105 miles at an average pace of 5:29.  This was the hardest he had pushed himself all season.  Levi is now the second fastest athlete I have coached at the state level during sixteen years of coaching.  Levi has been a joy to coach especially since he has put total faith in the type of training that we do.  Next year’s team will greatly miss Levi.”
