Moore caps junior season at state XC meet

Sigourney's Mason Moore competes in a meet at Washington Country Club earlier this season. He captured a 75th-place finish at state this past Saturday in Fort Dodge.

FORT DODGE — Competing against the best of the best in your respective sport is a challenge that every athlete should strive for. Sigourney’s Mason Moore has earned the right to compete amongst the best cross-country runners in the state two years in a row. He capped off his junior season this past Saturday in Fort Dodge with a 75th-place finish in the Class 1A boys state finals, with a time of 17:59.9.

Moore’s time was an improvement upon his sophomore-season result at Fort Dodge. Last year, he turned in an 18:19.8. He also improved his overall finish from 86th to 75th. Moore’s happy that his hard work since June, when the team’s workouts for this season started, was worth it.

“It’s just nice to see that what you’ve done throughout the season, it helps you and it pays off and it makes you feel a bit faster each year,” Moore said.
