2013 Cross Country Wrap-Up
By Michael Newton
Ten years removed from their only boys cross country champion, Jake Berns, in 2003, the boys team came close to a 19-minute time once when Sam Pfeiffer ran a 19:11 at North Fayette in September. The underclassmen-heavy team will continue to improve and Coaches Eliza Philpott and Matt Burns will encourage the returnees to keep running. The boys team loses Noah Schultz and Sam Pfeiffer to graduation.
The girls team was led by Chaun’te Drahn and Marcy Klein this year. Theie best race was at Hart Ridge Golf Course, where Klein ran 17:21 and Drahn 17:23. Three freshmen return next year in addition to Klein and Drahn. Postville girls Katelyn Wedo and Maya Burke graduate this year.
