ETHS Girls Cross Country varsity team placed ninth in a meet at Hinsdale on Sept. 7. The Kits’ top five runners (Cami Zecker, Kyla Steman, Emma Dzwierzynski, Gabi Dinsmore, Hunter Wortmann and Lydia Hoopingarner) ran a faster average time than the varsity team ran last year and reduced the split between the 1st and 5th runners by a minute. Coach Zachary Herrmann said, “The results from Hinsdale are encouraging, but there’s still a ways to go before we truly tap into the incredible amount of training many of our athletes put in this summer. It’s early, and there’s a great deal more to come from this team.” The team competes in the Woodruff CC Invitational on Sept. 14.
