The TigerHawk cross country teams battled not only the other 13 teams in competition on Thursday afternoon at the State Qualifying Meet in Jesup; but also the elements as cold and rainy conditions made the event even more of a challenge for runners.

The TigerHawk boys team made it two straight years that it has qualified for the State Meet as NFV scored 107, which was good enough for third-place behind Tipton (43) and Waukon (100).
