JANESVILLE (WKOW) -- Stevens Point senior Jake Bourget wasn't sure if the cross country season would be a reality in 2021. Following the 2021 Alternate Fall State Meet, the future Badger is still in disbelief but for a different reason.

"Our whole team was crushed when our fall season was cancelled," said the Bourget. "But we never lost hope that somehow there would be a spring season. When it actually happened, we were super excited to finally have the chance to win the individual title and win the team title."

The senior finished 15:38.6 for his first individual title after placing 14th in the 2019 WIAA State Meet.
