Email

A pair of Farmington runners came away satisfied with their performance at their first career state meet Saturday at St. Olaf College in Northfield.

Sophomore Justin Hyytinen placed 29th in a time of 16 minutes, 11 seconds on the hilly 5,000-meter course and junior teammate Maricia Pacheco placed 134th with a 4,000-meter time of 15:51.

Hyytinen turned in his best time of the season as he just missed All-State honors and came in sixth out of all the sophomores in the field.
