LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Liem Chot’s dominant high school cross country career at Lincoln North Star continued on Thursday.

The two-time defending state champ cruised to a district championship with a time of 16:03.67. The Gators claimed the team title as well.

“Guys are quick this year,” Chot said. “It’s going to take a lot of guts and just smart strategy to get that third title.”

Lincoln East won the girls championship, led by Izzy Apel’s second place finish.

The state meet is slated for next Friday, Oct. 25 in Kearney.
