Gaylord boys, girls cross country teams headed to StatesBENZONIA — The Gaylord boys and girls cross country teams are headed to the state finals this week.

Both Blue Devil teams placed second at the Division 2 regional at Benzie Central Saturday, cementing trips to the finals this Saturday at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn. It was Gaylord’s best combined regional performance since 1996.

“I am extremely pleased to have two teams going to the state finals,” said Gaylord coach Jeff Kalember. “We train together, hang out together and are basically one team, so it’s fitting that both go.”

Despite running their best race of the year, the Gaylord girls snapped a string of five consecutive regional championships, falling to No. 8-ranked Cedar Springs by 31 points. Still, Gaylord will be making its ninth-straight trip to the state finals.
