Four Whippets Headed To State From C-4 District

The Minden Whippets cross country teams wrapped up its 2010 season by competing in the Class C-4 district cross country meet held in Ogallala at West Winds Golf Course.
The Whippets will not be sending teams to the 2010 State Cross Country meet on Friday, Oct. 22 at the Kearney Country Club – but four individuals will represent Minden with the races starting at 2 and 3 p.m. State qualifiers for the Lady Whippets are Sydney Phillips, Jessica Dolan and Mackenzie Nelsen. The Minden boys will be represented by Chris Shelton.
