Burnet High School sophomore Hudson Bennett and junior Andrus Urista competed at the Class 4A state cross-country meet Nov. 24 at Old Settlers Park to end the 2020 season. 

Bennett was 20th overall in 16 minutes 33.58 seconds, while Urista clocked 18:05.92 to finish 97th overall. 

Runners battled the elements, including chilly winds and even a little rain that left the course wet.  

The two will now turn their attention to the 2021 track-and-field season that begins in the spring.
