For the second consecutive season, the Wyandotte Roosevelt boys’ cross country team is headed to the MHSAA Division 1 State Finals.
The Bears will compete Saturday at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn.
To qualify, Wyandotte put up a strong performance at the MHSAA Division 1 Regional race last Saturday at Lake Erie Metropark. At the Downriver League Meet on Oct. 18, which also took place at Lake Erie Metropark, the team captured its third consecutive league title.
Dominic Davis led Roosevelt at the regional race with a time of 16:26:00, which was good for seventh place overall.
Cameron Herron, Jake Coulter and Danny May all finished in the top 25 as well on Saturday.
Overall, seven members of the team will compete at the state finals.
Making the trip will be: Davis, Herron, Coulter, May, Austin Rice, Ryan Kusibab and Sean Pearce.
Wyandotte coach Justin Keyes said that qualifying for the state finals again has the team excited, and thinking big for the future of the Roosevelt cross country program.
“It feels good,” Keyes said. “These guys are pumped to go back next year already. They’re ready to do three in a row.”
