We followed our cross-country coach over to what is called the staging area. Basically you have to hold at least one of your bibs in order to get into the MSHSAA Cross-Country State Championships. My coach handed me a sheet of plastic like paper with the number 998 printed across it. I walked through the gate and waited for my teammates…
