KEARNEY — The Minden girls cross country team had two of its athletes at the Class C state meet, but only one of them was running.
Both had an impact though, Friday at the Kearney Country Club.
Sophomore Emma Jons led all Tribland competitors with a sixth-place finish in a time of 20 minutes, 46.9 seconds. Near the hydration station at the end of the race, she met up with freshman teammate Courtney Thompson.
Jons said she couldn't have done it if it weren't for her teammate.
