Rochester junior Madilyn Calloway finished in 52nd place out of 205 runners at the IHSAA state finals at the LaVern Gibson Championship Cross-Country Course in Terre Haute Saturday.
Calloway ran a 19:37. Her time was 30 seconds slower than her semistate time at New Prairie one week earlier and 39 seconds slower than her 2019 state time at the same Terre Haute course.
