LITCHFIELD — There will be one girl, and one boy representing DC in the Class AA cross country meet.

Emily Trocke took third, and Soren Bortnem took fourth, at the Section 6AA meet at the Litchfield Golf Course Thursday.

The DC boys took second, behind Delano and Orono. The Chargers were actually tied in points with WCC West foe Annandale, but won on the sixth-place finisher tiebreaker. The girls, meanwhile, took fifth.

Charlie Bortnem was one place away from making the big dance, finishing 2.1 seconds behind Will Massman of Annandale for the final state entrant spot.

Kate Jenkins was also very close for the girls, finishing three spots and 9.3 seconds from making the state tournament.
