Lincoln-Way East senior Brett Gardner will not compete in the Class 3A state cross country finals on Saturday, Nov. 9, in Peoria due to an injury, East coach Ross Widinski confirmed Tuesday, Nov. 5.

Gardner, a North Carolina State recruit, was expected to be a top contender for the state title. He had posted the second-fastest time in the state this season. Instead, a left ankle injury will end his season.
