Jamestown's Ford ranked No. 1

Jamestown High School girls cross country runner Meghan Ford is ranked No. 1 in the 2018 Class A North Dakota High School Coaches Poll for Aug. 29. The sophomore was third in the preseason poll.

Ford beat out Mandan's Kelby Rinas (previously ranked second) by 1 minute, 7 seconds during the 'Orr'iginals Meet at Parkhurst Recreation Area just north of Jamestown on Aug. 25.

Former top-ranked runner Mattie Shirley-Fairbairn (Bismarck High) moved down in the rankings because the team hasn't ran a race yet.

Edgeley-Kulm's Isaac Huber is ranked first in the Class B boys and Carrington's Payton Smith is second.

The Jamestown boys and girls cross country teams run at the VC Invite at Valley City Country Club tomorrow.
