Raiders Find Motivation, Win Regionals!

In a year where the Chicago Public Schools are sadly on strike, it might be hard to find motivation to run fast when all teams qualify for the next round. I give credit to the girls who took this day seriously and set the tone for their biggest race of the season, next week at the Fenton Sectional. Nothing has come easy for the girls this year but they made Saturday look easy featuring stellar performances from Regional Champion Kelly Anderson and Sectional Medalist (4th) Ali Salt who both featured Career PR's! Kiley DeNardo (3rd), Ellie Stewart (5th), and Alyssa Kain (7th) closed out the scoring for the Champion Raiders! Alex Gonzalez and Naomi Friedman rounded out the championship team. It was great to see Ellie Stewart return to form and move to within 11 seconds of her season PR! Next week provides the challenge of qualifying for the state meet. I don't know about you but I'm not quite ready for this season to end! Congratulations girls!
