Sophomore Ashton Gibbs was the lone men’s qualifier to the Regional Championships from the Lakota East cross country team. Ashton’s race was the last of the day and the course conditions were definitely the worst at that point. Ashton placed 79th overall in a time of 17:48. The top 20 individuals qualified to the State Championships.
Ashton had an amazing 2019 campaign, in just over a calendar year he went from running on the East JV team to an individual qualifier to the Regional Championships. Ashton will chalk this year’s Regional appearance up to experience as he begins his quest to run at the State Championships in 2020
