Vandalia junior Ben Strobel earned the final spot to the state cross country meet at Saturday's St. Teresa Sectional in Decatur, finishing 10th in the 5K race.
Ordinaraily, that would have easily put Strobel into the state meet, but because there were so many good runners in the race, his time of 15:46 almost fell short.
