Lafayette Jeff cross country taking aim at state berth

Seniors Josh Long and Quintin Talbott know they may be running their final cross country races for Lafayette Jeff on Saturday, but the duo has another goal besides taking the Bronchos to the state finals.
Coach (Dave) Howell tells us that this team is one of the best teams he’s ever coached, and we want to make sure it is the best team he’s ever coached,” Talbott said. “We want to go to state, but even if we don’t, we still can be the best.”
Long believes the New Prairie Semistate will be the best race he and the Bronchos will run this season.
We’re going to run it like it’s the last race we’ll ever run in our entire lives,” said Long, whose mother and aunt helped Lafayette Jeff finish sixth in the state in 1991. “I’m hoping to run in college, but it could be my last high school meet. No matter what my time is this week, it will be my best race.”
The Bronchos, West Lafayette, Frankfort, McCutcheon and Twin Lakes will be among 20 teams competing for six state berths. The level of competition will be higher, and so will the toughness of the course.
