Girls Cross Country – The race for state

This year the girls cross country team is determined to make it to state once again. The runners plan on giving it their all at the upcoming conference meet on Saturday, October 17th and in hopes of going all the way to state.

The runners “Can’t wait to get back to state” says Senior Sam Oberholtzer. The team has formed a very strong bond because they run every day after school and see each other on the weekends for meets. The girls really need to be there for one another especially around this time when they need to start pushing each other to get to state. They don’t mind though because they are a “Big family” says Senior Sydney Oberholtzer.

Winning conference is the team’s first big step to going to state. They need to keep up their pace by winning regional’s and then going to sectionals and finally making it to state. Last year the team made it to state, however despite great effort, they didn’t win.

This year they plan on winning their first state championship even though new teams have been added to the conference. Assistant coach Ms. Sterling has high hopes of beating Illiana Christian and Lemont.

Their chances this year remain high going into conference. Hopefully the family atmosphere will help them to push each other to the top.
