After finishing among the top three in their respective races, two Crofton cross country runners have added another honor to their collection, this time thanks to the Nebraska Coaches Association.
Jake Neuhalfen and Haley Arens were honored by the NCA Monday as All-State and Super State runners for the 2016 season.
Neuhalfen was named to the Class D Boys Cross Country All-State team. He was one of seven runners in Class D to receive the honor. At the state cross country meet, Neuhalfen was the lone medal winner for the Warriors, finishing third with a time of 17:03.72.
Arens was also honored by the NCA for her efforts on the year. Along with being one of seven girls in Class D named to the Girls Cross Country All-State team, she was additionally honored as one of just three runners named to the NCA Super State team. At the state meet in Kearney, Arens led the Warrior girls team to a seventh place finish in the team standings with her third place time of 19:34.95.
