Raiders Make STATEment!

Sunday, November 19 2017 - IHSA 2A Girls Cross Country State Meet

IHSA AA State Meet  11/4/2017

Raiders 24th!

I'm not sure I could have scripted this any better.  At the beginning of the year our goal was to make the Sectional.  As the season progressed, the State Meet became our target. After not running particularly well at Conference and Regional, The Raiders were picked to finish 8th at the Sectional. I love being the underdog.  We finished 4th and punched our ticket to State!  We challenged the girls to set their own goal for State and go for it!  The end result? Six of the 7 girls finished with season best races!  What a way to end our season, and hopefully, build some momentum into track and next season.  The Raiders were led by Ava Childs (19:15), Ellie Stewart (19:40), Ania Gniatczyk (19:42), Katie King (20:07), Cassidy Shirley (20:39), Julia Clingen (20:41, and Ali Salt (20:57)!  Congratulations girls for a season well done!
