Scottie Harriers Best Ever Third Place at Region Meet

The 15th nationally ranked Scotties scored 114 team points behind champion Johnson County with 66 points and Allen County with 69 points. Butler County’s Fiona Masai took the individual title with a time of 18:44.1.
Highland was led by sophomore Mary Kate Taylor (Chillicothe, Mo.) with a fourth place finish in 19:30.9.
