The Nebraska City Cross Country team has been working hard this summer and will be returning James Kearney and Chloe Schaulis.
Kearney and Schaulis qualified for state last season.  During their district run in 2017, Kearney finished 14th with a time of 18:15.  Schaulis placed  13th on the girls’ side with a finish time of 22:18.
This summer, Coach Ron Schaulis said that the team has been having fun.  
Schaulis said they had water balloon fights over the summer and breakfast on another day which adds to team unity.  
The middle school kids have been running with the high school athletes and coach Schaulis said that both groups get along really well.
Nebraska City opened the season at the Auburn Country Club on Thursday, Aug. 23.
