Its first girl across the line was in eighth place but Jefferson's runners foiled that: strategy by completing the 3.1 mile race in near lockstep order. Jefferson's boys were fifth as a team, but Jeff Gessler was third overall and thus qualified for the state meet at Williamstown High this Saturday. Gessler was beaten by Hampshire (the team winner) distance man Shane Ruggles and Stetson Snowden of Martinsburg. The top eight individual finishers all qualified for the state meet. Also running for the Cougars were Jacob Morton, J. Bryant, Tom I~vac, Joel Levac and Devin Abshire. The Jefferson girls were one of 10 state-wide teams to qualify for the Williamstown state meet race. George Washington and Cabell Midland and schools from the southern and western parts of the state will be overwhelming favorites to win the state meet.
