(FESTUS) From fastest 8th-grader in the nation to freshman Dream Team athlete, Festus cross country runner Cullen Krieg has started off his running career with a bang.

Krieg also finished 6th at state in Class 3 with a time of 15-minutes and 59-seconds, helping the Tigers to their 6th straight state championship. Krieg talks about the run at state.

As for making Dream Team, Cullen isn’t the only Krieg to have done so as Cullen’s older brother Jonah made it as well a couple of years ago.

In addition to finishing 6th at state, Cullen Krieg had three Top 3 finishes throughout the year, one of which was at the JCAA Conference meet and the other which was at the district meet.
