Week 12

Sunday, November 3 2019


Week 11 Recap: Saturday both Boys and Girls teams competed in the always challenging Belvidere Sectional. The Girls team was focused and determined to have a great day and that they did! For the first time in school history the Girls are Sectional Champions! All 5 scoring runners finished in the top 30 as the team scored a paltry 78 points at the best Sectional in IL! Brooke Stromsland claimed her 2nd straight Sectional title with Olivia Schmitt also earning All Sectional honors in 8th! The pack of Maddie Perez, Becca Runyan, and Alex Bryant ran outstanding as the girls outpaced second place by 12 points. Krista Gfesser and Kayla Dieringer also had big days as they both finished in the top 100. Both teams competed with a lot of pride and displayed amazing teamwork. Unfortunately the Boys team came up short in their bid for qualifying for state for the 2nd straight year. It wasn't for lack of effort as each man competed with the same tenacity and determination as they have all year. We are so proud of this group and the way they competed, unfortunately it was not our day. 

Week 12 Preview: It's STATE WEEK! We are incredibly proud of our ladies competing at Detweiller the is weekend. The girls race at 11am on Saturday and we hope to see you there! 

Shout Out: We want to thank our Seniors (RJ Migas, Talon Knauf, Sean Humpa, and Tim Smith) for 4 years of incredible service to the team. They are leaving our group in a much better place then when they found it. We are indebted to them for the tremendous culture that they have helped us cultivate. 

Thank you to everyone who came out to support the team at Sectionals.

Thanks to Mr. & Mrs. Dwyer for their behind the scenes work on setting up the banquet.
