Kewaunee's Cameron Cullen will have one more race this alternative fall season after qualifying for the state meet on Saturday.
Cullen's 18:19 5K time was not his fastest of the season after breaking 18 minutes a handful of times at meets, but his fifth-place finish helped him be the area's only individual qualifier. As a whole, the Kewaunee boys took seventh out of eight qualifying teams at the Whitewater sectional. The Kewaunee girls were also the only local team with enough runners to score, taking eighth place out of nine teams with 193 points. Hannah Morton paced the Storm girls with a time of 24:52.
Joining him at the state meet is Sturgeon Bay freshman Jullia Kurek. After winning several girls' races leading into Saturday's sectional meet, Kurek's 22:35 on the 5K course catapulted her to one final race this month.
Kurek and Cullen will race at this Saturday's state meet at Blackhawk Golf Course in Janesville.
