BLOOMINGTON — West Lafayette’s Bobbie Burgess thrives on the hills and wooded trails of the fall cross country season.

The senior admits that running circles on synthetic tracks in the spring challenges one’s concentration. But at Saturday’s state meet at Indiana University, one of the area’s most decorated distance runners locked her focus on one runner: Mishawaka sophomore Anna Rohrer.

Burgess could not catch the Caveman standout, a cross country national champion, but she managed one final milestone in a stellar career. The future Georgetown runner finished as Rohrer’s runner-up at the Robert C. Haugh Track and Field Complex.

“It’s definitely enjoyable to do it that way and end on a high note,” said Burgess, who finished seventh in the 3,200 as a junior. “It just takes a lot of dedication to make sure you’re getting better; staying on top of things, even more than you were the day before.”
