Kate Jochims has already had a cross-country career to remember, and she still has two more years to add to an already impressive resume.
The Muskego sophomore took third place at the WIAA Division 1 cross-country meet Oct. 29 at Ridges Golf Course in Wisconsin Rapids, helping the Warrior girls cross-country team to an eighth-place finish.
Divine Savior Holy Angels junior Meghan Scott won the Division 1 state championship with a time of 18:10.46. Whitefish Bay senior Camille Davre took second in 18:24.71, while Jochims completed the 5,000-meter course in 18:30.14.
Jochims improved her time by over 25 seconds from last year's state meet, as she took 10th place in 18:55.76 as a freshman in 2015.
The girls team scored 234 team points to come in six points ahead of ninth-place Brookfield Central and 11 points behind seventh-place DSHA. Sun Prairie rolled to the Division 1 team state championship with 82 points.
Freshman Brittany Helm came in 30th in 19:27.42, sophomore Jessica Michala took 73rd in 20:01.64, senior Callie Schulist was 134th in 20:46.08 and sophomore Elizabeth Missiaen rounded out the scoring lineup by placing 142nd in 20:56.66.
