KV Girls' Cross Country Finishes NCC Regular Season With Two Big Wins
September 25, 2013Kankakee Valley High School
On a night when their four seniors: Brittany Stepp, Allison Rockley, Kaylin Orsburn and Kate Lott were honored, KV's ladies ran perhaps their best overall cross country meet of the 2013 season. With Stepp-2nd overall in 21:08 on the challenging course, Rockley-3rd in 21:28, fr. Brittany Kent-4th in 22:02, Orsburn-5th in 22:06 and Kent's buddy and classmate Allison Schultheis-7th in 22:29, KV ran inspired and as a pack to defeat two solid teams in Lowell and Highland. KV finishes another very strong NCC regular season with a fine record of 4-2. Jr. Lauren VanderWall also ran very well, taking 12th in a personal record time of 23:46, followed by Boo Beenes-15th in 24:12. Lott hustled home in 25:02. Gabby Dumont-27:11 and Maddi Nomanson-27:48, also competed for KV. Since their freshmen year of 2010, KV's seniors have been a large part of much team (two NCC titles, two sectional championships, two semi-state berths and lots of fine invite performances ) and individual success (many all-conference selections, all-area and top finishes at sectional, regional and invites). With tonight's stellar performances, and along with this year's fine underclassmen, they look poised to add to their legacy as this season winds down. Go Kougars!
