Cross country: Hyytinen, Pacheco fare well in state meet debuts
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.
