At Missouri West State University on Sept. 30, junior Brian Purkaple sets the pace for the following varsity runners. He was the first Winnetonka runner to pass the finish line with a time of 19:20.

“The highlight of the meet was, for me, getting to run on a new course, since most of the year I have had to run the same meets as I have in years past,“ Purkaple said.
