Warsaw girls cross country runners Ashley Erba and Cendall Ogle had a frustrating day Saturday at the state finals.
Erba, who had not lost a race this year and was the New Haven Semistate champion, was running in the top after the first 2,000 meters when she begin to not feel well and slow down. About 2,000 more meters, she stepped off the course and didn't finish.
Ogle, who has run in the state finals as a junior and senior, slowed down to check on Erba as she passed the Warsaw freshman. In doing so, she gave up her position and could not gain it back. She finished 65th.
