After taking an early lead in the girls 4K varsity race at the Bill Jansen Invitational this weekend, Langdon Area High School junior Kennedy Rude was only leery of one thing â€” the end.
"I got kind of nervous because I've been out-sprinted at the end before," Rude, the No. 2 ranked Class B runner in the state, said. "Today, I wasn't going to let that happen."
Instead, she maintained her pace and her lead all the way to the end of the race at Bjornson Park Golf Course, finishing in 16:03, two seconds ahead of her closest competitor.
