The weather and the course were perfect for the race as our cross country runners had the opportunity to compete in the IHSA Sectional meet at Lisle Community Park this past weekend.
Scott Naubert (Sr.) and Jake Elafros (Fr.) competed on the boys’ side. Scott reached a Personal Best time of 19:09 for the 3.1 mile course. His time placed him 53rd out of 150 runners. Jake ran a great race, finishing with a time of 19:40, placing him in 76th place. The cut-off for either of our runners to advance to the State Finals was 17:33.
In the girls’ meet, Sephora Ducrozet (Fr.) ran a great race. She had finished 3rd in Regionals the week before, and she built on that success. Sephora completed her Sectional race with a time of 20:47 for the 3.1 mile course, cutting 13 seconds off from her previous week’s race. Her run in Sectionals earned her a 12th place finish out of 137 runners, and a trip to the STATE FINALS! Congratulations to Sephora, and we wish you well next weekend. Sephora will be running in the IHSA State Finals at 9:00am on Saturday, November 05, at Detweiller Park in Peoria.
