JEFFESON CITY – A Waynesville High cross country runner represented the school at the 2013 Class 4 State Cross Country Championship at Oak Hills Golf Course on Saturday.
Najim Udchachon, a WHS junior, finished 110th of 163 runners at the competition with a time of 17:29.
Waynesville coach Nicole Arnold said Udchachon "ran his hardest [Saturday]."
"I am proud of what Najim has accomplished this season, and he should be too," Arnold said. Udchachon was Waynesville's lone participant at the 2013 State Championship after the team sent four runners to the Class 4, Section 3 race on Nov. 2 – Udchachon, Adrian Shanahan (Sr.), Nick Victor (Fr.), and Kellsie Herrmann (Jr.).
"I feel so lucky for the opportunity to coach at Waynesville this season," Arnold said. "I have learned so much in my first year of coaching and I am already excited for next year."
Only Shanahan will graduate in spring 2014.
