Ethan Morrow & Carli Skiles of Mercer County cross country will compete at state Saturday, Nov. 7, at Detweiler Park in Peoria. A caravan Friday morning sent the Eagles on their way. The boys team, made up of all underclassmen, finished seventh in the sectional, just missing the fifth place finish for the entire team to qualify. Hopes are high the team will qualify in 2016. The girls were 11th in the sectional at Elmwood.
