COLUMBIA — So far, the Rock Bridge cross country program is living up to its No.1 state ranking.

The Bruins had strong performances at the Class 4, District 5 meet Saturday in Lebanon. Both the boys and girls teams won their races and advanced as teams to next weekend's sectional competition.

The top-three finishers in the boys 5K race were all Bruins. Junior Nathan Keown won in 15:42, just barely edging out senior Caleb Wilfong who finished second in 15:43. Senior Jordan Cook was third in 15:50.

Out of the 70 runners competing, all seven Bruins runners finished in the top 11 spots.

Freshman Kayla Funkenbusch took third in the girls race in 18:48. Senior Sam Garrett was fourth in 19:01. All seven Bruins finished in the top half of the 51-runner race.

The Class 4, Sectional 3 meet will be Saturday at Ha Ha Tonka State Park in Camdenton. The state cross country championships are scheduled for Nov. 5.
