Two Vikings have one more race to run

PEORIA – Two Guilford Vikings runners qualified for one more run at glory at this past weekend’s IHSA sectional cross country meets.

Sophomore Brandon Lawson finished seventh in the Lake Park sectional with a time of 15:55.5 over the three-mile course and junior Juan Del Real came in 19th.

Del Real and Lawson finished first and second in the NIC-10 championship meet in mid-October.

They were the only Rockford Public Schools runners to advance to this weekend’s IHSA 3A championship race in Peoria.

Among the girls runners, the highest finisher was Michelle Gasmund of Guilford who finished 53rd in her sectional. Gasmund was the NIC-10 conference champion.
