The Wyoming High School State Cross Country Championships will be run at three different locations on Friday.

UPDATE: The weather forecast has forced a change and moved the races from Saturday, Oct. 24 to Friday, Oct. 23 in all three classifications. Better weather is in the forecast for Friday.

Start times at each venue will remain the same.


Class 2A runs at the Douglas Community Golf course, while 3A is in Afton at the Valley View Golf Course, and finally, Class 4A will race at Paradise Valley Country Club in Casper.

In Class 2A, only three of last year’s top 10 return in the girls’ field, while seven boys who finished in the top 10 a year ago are back, including the top three.

Rawlins star Sydney Thorvaldson will try for a clean sweep of four titles in four years. She leads a field that has eight of the top-10 back from last year. The boys’ field features five returners from 2019’s top-10 finishers.

In 4A, the girls’ field has seven of the top-10 returning from a year ago, while on the boys’ side, there are only four back from last year’s top-10.
