Jackson, listed as one of the Top 50 players in the country, has been named the MVP of the state tournament two straight years and has led her high school team to a 103-3 record since entering high school.

I thought we ran pretty well at regional, but we're going to have to have a real good race and we'll line it up and see what happens." Sacred Heart, Ell-Saline Sacred Heart and Ell-Saline will have senior runners competing for an individual medal in today's Class 2-1A girls race. Sacred Heart's Sara Wells and Ell- Saline's Kristine Isaacson are state veterans. Wells finished eighth at state a year ago when she was splitting her time between volleyball and cross country. This year her fall training schedule has been strictly cross country and the multi-talented senior has shown steady improvement. Wells will have to contend with the top two runners from last year's 2-1A state meet. Defending champion Dodie Martin of Stanton County returns after easily winning the Dighton regional last week. Jackie Stiles of Claflin, the 1995 runner-up, edged Wells by four seconds at the McPherson regional. Isaacson is making her fourth appearance at state and attempts to improve upon a personal best 29th place finish as a sophomore. "I've qualified for state all four years and this is where in the past I haven't been as mentally focused as I should be," Isaacson said. "This year I'm ready." Sacred Heart coach Brad Fowles will take a young team to state, with four freshmen on the boys squad. "Our freshmen have pushed our upperclassmen all through the season," Fowles said. "I'm probably going to have the youngest team out there. We typically start off slow and build as the season goes along. It's been that way the last three years."

Seniors Jami Scoville and Tih'a Baxa are competing at state for the fourth consecutive year, while seniors Chad Wahlgren and Matt Perry have run for South's stifle teams since their sophomore year. Junior Amanda Pratt and sophomores Amanda Lampe and Brandon Ebert all make their second state appearance, while newcomers Brian Lamia and Lesa McCumber were among the team's top finishers at last week/s McPherson regional. Salina Central qualified three individuals, including sopHp- more Jessica Williams making a return trip to state. Sophomore Adam Moos and junior AiJ. Young will both run at state for the first time. "All three of them should have^a shot to medal," Central coach Gary Goodwin said.
