JEFFERSON CITY — In front of a large fan base cheering her on, Lebanon High School freshman Myah Hough performed well on the big stage during the Missouri State Class 4 cross country championship on Saturday at Oak Hills Golf Center in Jefferson City.

Hough finished Saturday’s race 74th out of 169 runners and crossed the line with a time of 20:50.07.

Senior Ginger Murnieks of Lee’s Summit West won the title with a time of 18:35.78.

“It was a great weekend for Myah at the State cross country meet,” head coach Teresa Moore said. “Placing where she did is a milestone accomplishment for anyone, but especially a freshman.

“What is even more awesome is that if you look at runners who are in the southwest Missouri area, she was ninth. In looking at the SWCCCA, only eight girls placed ahead of Myah at the State meet. This is certainly an awesome feat and something that everyone in ‘Jacket Nation can be proud of.”

Hough mentioned last week that going into Saturday’s meet that she wanted to stay focused, run her race and finish with a time under 23 minutes.
