 Brooklyn — The last time the Linden varsity girls cross country team had made it to the MHSAA Lower Peninsula Cross Country Championships, disco was still in, Jimmy Carter was the president of the United States and the Village People were singing their hit song, “YMCA”.

 But the 30-year departure from the state’s elite meet ended Saturday at Michigan International Speedway, and the Linden Eagles, who finished 24th in Division 2, were thrilled.

 “It’s indescribable,” said Linden’s sole senior runner in the race, Sayre Jedele. “I am so happy to be here. It’s been the greatest senior year. I’m so proud of all the girls, for giving me an opportunity to run in this race. It was a ton of fun.”

 “It’s cool because we made history at Linden,” Linden’s top runner at the meet, Mayce Varacalli said. “For the past 30 years, we haven’t had a team that has gone to state together. We’ve had girls go by themselves, but not as a team. It’s been fun.”
