All-State Athletes

Since 1953, we have had 47 "All-State" performances from 36 different runners at the State Meet. To earn All-State honors, a runner must finish in the top 25 of the State Meet (N.b.: Before 1997, the All-State cut-off was top 15). To the current day, Larry Dirnberger in 1961 remains SLUH's only individual XC state champion.
