Three state championships in three years in high school. A remarkable feat for St. Anthony High School junior Anna Sophia Keller.

Keller won the Class 1A Girls State Cross Country Meet in Peoria Saturday morning. Her winning time of 16:21 smashed her two previous winning times of 16:35 as a freshman and 16:37 as a sophomore. She had won the sectional last Saturday in 16:32. 

Keller's freshman teammate, Abby Weis, finished 62nd in the meet with a time of 19:15.

The other local competitor at the girls meet, Teutopolis sophomore Kara Weichman, finished 48th in 18:53.

There was one area competitor in the Class 1A State Boys Meet. Freshman Kort McClellan of Cumberland finished 27th in 15:38. That's eight seconds better than his sectional time.
