This year’s girls’ team will be led by Junior Grace Feder who won the conference championship and ran in the state meet last year. Other veterans returning are Jessica Ahlbrecht, Isabelle Vos, Baleigh Peterson and senior, Cassandra Banda.
This year’s team has a number of new runners who should provide speed and depth we’ve lacked in the past. Anna and Beth Feder are in their first year and are off to a great start as is first year runner, Leza Koroleva. Junior Elise Swenson looks to contribute in her first year as well giving this squad much better depth than last year.
The boys’ team is still a work in progress but we expect to look to veteran runners, Brennar Peterson and Mitchel Stark as well as newcomers, Carter Sabo and Abram Cardenas.
The boys’ team will be thin but the girls’ program looks to be in great shape for a strong season where they hope to be near the top of the conference and to be very competitive in the Section 2 meet in late October.
