“And it took an 18-year-old girl to step in and help.”A humble rescuer, Liana says she was certain by the time she spotted Gracie that she was not going to advance to state.Still, as Gracie points out, Liana’s decision to stop and help led to her disqualification from her last high school race.“Knowing that she would do that, especially her senior year in her last race, it just means everything,” says Gracie.Yet, most disagree to this because Preschool and Kindergarten are considered to be years of preparation, rather than actual education.

We offer clinics in the fall and winter months and our annual summer camp in June.

We also offer a team camp in July (odd years) and a coaches clinic in February (even years).

‘I’m not wanting this hard enough, I have to keep fighting for it,'” Gracie told herself. But as Gracie approached the finish line, she staggered and fell face forward to the ground. Gracie’s mother watched it all, separated from her daughter by a rope and a row of spectators. Missy wanted to run to her daughter, but “I was told, ‘You can’t go out, you can’t go out,' and people were screaming, ' You can’t touch her, you can’t touch her.'”The admonitions were correct based on the rules.

Gracie pulled herself up, staggered, and then fell again. Under rules enforced by the Minnesota State High School League, one runner assisting another runner is grounds for disqualification for both.

Eighth grade is the term used for the year of education in some countries. Students are usually in their eighth year of education at the time they enter eighth grade.

It is typically the last year for Middle school, and the ninth school year of public and private education, following kindergarten and subsequent grades.

– From first grade to the walk across a high school stage, students are taught to follow the rules.

Similar terms, for example Grade 8, are used in other countries (see below).

In the United States, eighth grade is usually the second or third year of middle school (junior high school), although some systems mark it as the final year of elementary school and some as the second year of high school (in Quebec or parts of Australia for example).

Gracie Bucher is glad one student knew when to break them.“She was definitely a miracle for me,” says the Windom 8 grader from another school who came to her rescue at the section cross country meet - and in doing so was disqualified herself.“There’s nothing better than that,” says Gracie.
