All Vandalia junior Ben Strobel wanted to do at this year's Illinois High School Association Class A state cross country meet was to finish with a faster time and a better place than he did as a sophomore.
Check and check.
Strobel finished the 5K race in 15:48 to finish 29th in the field of 208 runners on Saturday at Detweiller Park in Peoria, besting last season's finish by 49 places and 27 seconds.
He placed 78th as a sophomore, finishing the race in 16:15.
