The STC Cross Country ended their season with a banquet in November.

Highlights from the season included junior Callie Frakes competing in her second State Meet in Fort Dodge. She finished 10th at Districts and placed 62nd at State. Frakes improved her time from 21:05.6 in 2016 to 20:49.4 in 2018 and also improved her State place finish from 87th to 62th. Frakes was injured during her sophomore year of cross country and was unable to compete in the District Meet.

The Trojans also celebrated three from the team earning Academic All-Conference in the WaMaC. Garrett Arp, Makayla Backen and Mitch Knock were the three student athletes to earn the honor.
