The VCSU cross country team traveled to Dakota State for the Dakota State invitational on Saturday, October 5. The team ran well and took 8th in the team scoring. Tim Peterson and Jeremy Radakovich led the Vikes finishing 19th and 20th while each running their best times of the year. Josh Smith, who also would have finished high in the individual standings, was sick and unable to perform. Coach Egeberg said that with Smith running, the team could have placed as high as 4th or 5th, so he was sorely missed. Overall the Vikes did very well and keep improving every week.
