Evergreen Pak, IL
(October 13, 2018). The Girls Cross Country did an amazing job Saturday at 50 Acres Park in Evergreen Park. They won the Frosh/Soph and Varsity titles for the SSC Red Championship. They even dominated the Open race and won that—for a total team sweep. The Frosh Soph race was led by Corrin Smith, who won the whole race. Alyssa Carrillo (5th), Nadia Alpuche (6th), Aylin Rojas (7th), Cordy Gulzynski (8th), Pam Sanchez (9th), and Daria Ziomek (11th) all ran great races to help capture the F/S title.
