The Butler Bears Cross Country team traveled to Clinton on Tuesday, October 14th for the Ozark Highlands Conference Championships.

To achieve All-Conference status, you must get top 10 in your race. Butler had a few come through, plus some good times overall. Mika Vice becomes the first Butler runner in school history to achieve All-Conference more than once! While he may not have achieved All-Conference, Ronen Hilgenberg ran in his first career HS meet and ran a fantastic time!
