West Salem’s Jack Meier crosses the finish in first place during the CVC District Championships at Bush’s Pasture Park on Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2022 in Salem, Ore.

The OSAA cross country state championships will be held Saturday for all classifications at Lane Community College in Eugene. 

The Mid-Valley will be represented across the classifications in girls and boys. 

Here is a look at the 10 Mid-Valley cross country runners to keep an eye on during the state meet. 

1: Jack Meier, West Salem (Class 6A)

The West Salem junior has the state’s best 6A time of 14:46.3, which he ran on Oct. 26 at the Central Valley Conference championships when he won the individual title. 

Last season at the Mountain Valley Conference championships, Meier ran a 16:28.2. He’s improved his time by almost 2 minutes in the past year. 

Meier said he was inspired by watching his younger sister, Avery, win the district meet.
