Millington senior harrier Logan Gutierrez will run once more as a Cardinal this coming Saturday, November 2. On the back of his 5th place finish at last Friday’s regional meet in Shepherd where he ran a personal-best 16:48.7, Gutierrez qualified to run in his first state final event.
He is the first Millington male to run in the state finals since Tom Charlton did in both the 1977 and 1978 seasons. Charlton finished in 39th place in 1977 and in 18th place in 1978.
The state finals will take place at Michigan International Speedway (MIS) in Brooklyn, MI. The speedway’s address is 12626 US-12. MIS will open at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday with the Division 3 boys racing at 11:30 a.m. Admission to MIS is $8 per person and can be purchased either at the gate or online at www.mhsaa.com.
