Varsity Cross Country at IHSA State Championships Update
Varsity Cross Country at IHSA

The Illinois High School Association Cross Country State Championship was this past weekend in Peoria and we were represented by our Boys Varsity team as well as freshman Taara Sajdeh on the girls side.

This is the first time since 2019 that our boys have qualified as a team and our Maroons had an amazing showing, with almost everyone running personal bests!

Freshman Taara Sajdeh

Taara crushed her PR running a sub 19 minute race. On the boys side it was a day of PRs as well: 

  • Simon Lane: 15:30 from 16:06
  • Connor Lane: 17:56 from 18:16
  • Ellis Domenic: 17:15 from 17:37
  • Oliver Go: 17:13 from 17:21
  • Sean Niro: 18:01 from 18:22

Please congratulate Taara Sajdeh, Simon Lane, Ben O'Donnell, Leyton Mueller, Oliver Go, Ellis Domenick, Connor Lane and Sean Niro as well as their amazing coaches Diane Jackson, Austin Warner, and Alexys Napper!
